For the wine love, German wine festivals are an experience not to be missed.

Almond Blossom Festival in March

The small town of Gimmeldingen (Gimmeldingen vacation rentals | Gimmeldingen travel guide) along the German Wine Road hosts the first of the German wine festivals of the year: Between mid-March and April, when almond blossoms paint the countryside in white and pink, the Mandelbluetenfest (Almond Blossom Festival) kicks off Germany’s wine festival season. Bakeries sell flower-shaped sugar cookies adorned with pink icing, and wine stands offer fruity Reisling and Pinot Noir.

Wurstmarkt in September

Although this wine festival is officially called Wurstmarkt (sausage market), it is famous for its celebration of excellent local wines. Located in Bad Duerkheim in Rhineland Palatinate, Germany's second largest wine growing region, the Wurstmarkt prides itself in being the world's biggest wine festival. This culinary event has been celebrated every September for almost 600 years.
