In 1934, using 200 40-meter long pine boards, barrel maker and vintner Fritz Keller built the world’s largest barrel. It has never held any liquid but holds a wine bar and restaurant instead. At 13.5 meters wide it could hold 1,700,000 liters of wine.—apparently 100 liters for every single person in town!
The Giant Barrel, also known as the “Heart of the German Wine Route,” is a monument to Germany’s history of viniculture and sits appropriately at the edge of the town’s square, where the annual “Sausage Fair” is held.
