The historic town of Bad Dürkheim lying on the edge of Palatinate Forest on Germany's oldest wine routes, is well known for its vineyards and mineral springs. Every year, on the second and third weekend of September, corresponding to Oktoberfest celebrations around the country, Bad Dürkheim holds the world's biggest wine festival called Wurstmarkt—which actually means “sausage market”. The festival takes its name from the spacious sausage market area in the middle of the town where the festivities takes place, with the organizers erecting fairground rides and temporary food stalls.

Sitting right in the middle of the sausage market is the world’s largest wine barrel—13.5 meters in diameter and a capacity of 1.7 million liters. Unfortunately, it doesn’t hold wine. Instead, it houses a restaurant.
