BAD DÜRKHEIM – Riesenfass

Bad Dürkheim is in the record books for the ‘Dürkheimer Fass’ – the largest wine barrel in the world which could hold up to 1.700.000 litres. It was built in 1934 by Fritz Keller, a winemaker and cooper. Two hundred 40 metres tall pines – about 200 m³ of wood – were used for building the barrel, which has a diameter of 13,5 m. The barrel has never actually been filled with wine, inside it there is a rustic-style wine bar and restaurant. The interior is just as barrel-like as the outside, with skilfully carved oak barrel ends hanging on the walls illustrating the art of wine making. In summer you can sit outside in the wine garden in the shade of the giant cask.
