Although this fair is called “Wurstmarkt” (sausage market), the folk festival is famous for its celebration of excellent local wines from along the German Wine Road. Located in the heart of Palatinate (west of Frankfurt), Germany’s second largest wine growing region, the Wurstmarkt prides itself in being the world’s biggest wine festival. The entertainment along with the wine is one of the distinctive features of the festival. Whether in the large wine halls or at the traditional “Schubkärchler” (small traditional wine stands with scrubbed wooden tables worn smooth over the years) visitors can enjoy over 150 different wines in over 50 different places – from the mellow Riesling to the finest ice-wine. The culinary event has been celebrated every September for nearly 600 years, and what has started as a fair for local farmers and wine growers, attracts now more than 600,000 visitors annually.
