Backfisch Festival in Worms

The town of Worms, associated with the saga of the Nibelungs, will be celebrating the biggest wine festival and volksfest on the Rhine from 30 August to 7 September 2014. The Backfisch Festival features many exciting events but also honours old-established traditions. The Worms Fishermen's Guild, the oldest guild in Germany, is, as usual, at the heart of the festival. For the nine fun-packed days, people young and old will be gathering at the Kisselswiese festival grounds to take part in the opening celebrations, to soak up the atmosphere, to marvel at the fireworks, and, of course, to enjoy the cosy ambience in the seasonal wine rooms and sample local wines.
