Giant Cask in the Dürkheim City

The Giant Wine Cask

The great wine barrel called Giant Cask, by the local inhabitants usually named simply "Därgemer Fass" is a tourist attraction of the Palatinate spa town Bad Dürkheim and the German Wine Route.

It is therefore the largest wine cask of the world with a capacity of 1.7 million liters, built in 1934 by the local cellarman Fritz Keller.

The barrel was never filled with wine, yet now there's a fancy wine bar and fine dining restaurant inside. The interiors of the giant wine barrel have been designed as a typical wine bar of any kind. It's open daily from 10:00 am. There are two levels (ground floor and gallery) and enough place for as many as 430 guests. Because of the large number of visitors, in 1958 a wooden barrel-like platform had been built which offers space for 120 additional guests.
