sights in Bad Dürkheim

The barrel of Bad Dürkheim offers the unique opportunity to eat in a wine barrel. It is also called the huge barrel of Bad Dürkheim as it has a holding capacity of 1.700000 liters and a diameter of 13,5 meters. It is the largest wine barrel worldwide.

As an attraction you should not miss, we recommend you to see the barrel of Bad Dürkheim during your stay at the Garden Hotel Heusser. You can search for your individual short holiday in Bad Dürkheim here.

The barrel was built in a traditional form and manner. It is however colossal in its size. The outer appearance is already very impressive and worth a visit. In 1934, the cooper Fritz Keller used almost 200 fir trees, each around 40 m in length, from the northern Black Forest. Inside the barrel, you will find a restaurant which is decorated in the style of a traditional Palatinate wine tavern. In the barrel of Bad Dürkheim you can experience excellent Palatinate cuisine and enjoy some of the regional Palatinate wines.

From our Garden Hotel Heusser the barrel of Bad Dürkheim is only a comfortable walk away. It is located in the Northeast of the old town and on the western edge of the so-called Brühlwiesen where the annual Wurstmarkt, the world's largest wine festival, takes place every September. This festival is a highlight in Bad Dürkheim and considered the 5th season for all real Bad Dürkheimer's.

The barrel of Bad Dürkheim is only one of many sights in Bad Dürkheim. If you are visiting the barrel, we recommend you to also walk through the nearby newly designed spa park. The small river Isenach was renaturated in April 2013 and has been flowing through the spa garden in Bad Dürkheim much to the joy of everyone ever since. Our team of the Garden Hotel Heusser is always there for you to assist you in planning your personal excursions in this region with many tips and helpful info material.
