    The beautiful fountain at the train station shows motifs related to wine consumption, hence the name Wurstmarktbrunnen.

    This is an impressive fountain!
    Various motifs of cast bronze show typical folk festival scenes and symbolize the "fifth season" of Bad Dürkheim.

    The fountain shows very nicely that wine plays a major role in the Palatinate; i.a. one reason why you feel so comfortable here

    Sausage Market Fountain (1988)
    Walter Graser, Ulmet

    The figures and groups of figures stand not only for the historical origin of the festival (monk), but also for many things that are part of folk festivals. Some of the specialties from Dürkheim can be discovered underneath. The occasion for the sausage market was a pilgrimage to the Michaeliskapelle, during which every pilgrim received an indulgence of 100 days. After many pilgrims came, the appropriate food had to be provided. The winemakers moved to the chapel in wheelbarrows that carried a barrel of wine. There the vehicle was turned over and served as a makeshift counter. For this reason, the wine tents of the festival are still called “Schubkarchestand” today.
    The local poet from Dürkheim, Karl Wheels, described his own experience as follows: "Whoever vum Worschtmarkt stays dehäm, duht em loads and lasts ehm".

    The fountain is a good place to be able to wait for the train.

    There are many details to discover on the legs. Unfortunately, the area is a bit too restless, so that it hardly invites you to linger here.
