Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt

Yet another trip up north to the Pfalz - this time to take in the world's biggest winefest at the weekend. Strictly speaking, the trip wasn't my idea, but I happily took care of the logical side of the visit.

We stayed at Hofgut Gönnheim, in the lovely village of Gönnheim situated east of Wachenheim. Set in the centre of the village, the hotel has a beautiful courtyard with an adjoining winery and restaurant. And great hospitality, too.

We sampled virtually everything the Pfalz has to offer at this time of the year: Federweisser, Saumagen with chestnuts, Leberknödel, "Worscht", Weinkraut and a few Rieslingschorlen while sitting down at some of the Wurstmarkt's thirty-six Schubkarchstände.

Lots of fun, and yet very civilised. The "in-laws" from England also loved it, I think.
