September 21 @ 11:00 am - October 31 @ 9:00 pm€5 – €8
Usually September is the month when one of the biggest wine festivals in the world, the Bad Dürkheim Wurstmarkt, takes place. This year the event had to be cancelled due to protective measures against the coronavirus. But at least one substitute for all the fun rides was built up in Bad Dürkheim´s Kurpark where the fair is held usually: The CITY STAR, the world´s largest mobile giant wheel of the Göbel family from Worms was built up in Bad Dürkheim. The giant wheel with its 48 air conditioned gondolas has a height of 230 ft. and weighs 400 tons. It takes 16 trailers to carry it and approx. 4 – 5 days to build it up. Until the end of October it will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays. The fare for a ride is € 8 for adults, € 7 for students and seniors from 65 years, € 5 for children aged 3 to 11. Children younger than 3 years have a free ride, as well as birthday boys and girls. Visit Bad Dürheim, take a ride and enjoy the panoramic view of the city and the wine region!
