What is Wine Fest?: Everyone knows that Germany is home to festivals that serve beer, but did you know that the world's largest wine festival is held in Germany? The Dürkheimer Wurstmarket is the world's largest wine festival with over 600,000 visitors each year. It is held annually on the second and third weekends of September. During the fall, there are many wine fests all around the German Wine regions. There are restaurants, but also "Strausswirtschaften," a type of wine tavern in Germany’s winegrowing area that only open during certain times of the year. Typically, it is a pub run by winegrowers and winemakers themselves, which sell their own wine directly to the public. Guests can sit on benches and drink local wine and try local food!
