The date has become a tradition: on the 2nd and 3rd weekend in June, Wachenheim is all about the castle and wine festival. Upstairs, on the Wachtenburg, there will be celebrations as well as in various places and courtyards downstairs in the town. There will be - of course - selected wines and sparkling wine to drink, as well as regional specialties and lots of music. Musically as well as culinary the palette of the castle and wine festival is so wide that it appeals to many different groups: the youth and the family, but also the more mature age groups, the guests from the region as well as the locals. The two festival areas, up at the castle and down in the city, are connected by a shuttle bus for those who find the way to the castle too arduous.
