The Baden wine cellar
The Baden Winzerkeller, an association of several Baden winegrowers' cooperatives, was founded in Breisach in 1952. The small wooden barrack became a large complex with impressive cellar buildings on 2200 hectares. Nine cultivation areas from Lake Constance to Tauberfranken and 4500 winegrowers and winegrowing families are represented. Wine variety from one source and quality directly from the producer - this is what the Badische Winzerkeller stands for. It also houses the largest wooden barrel cellar in Europe. Valuable wines have been stored in the wine archive since the Gründerzeit. Every year 20,000 visitors come to visit the wooden barrel cellar and the wine archive with the underground visitor train to take a look behind the scenes of wine production.

There are daily visits to the Badischer Winzerkeller. Guided tours take place in the morning and afternoon.

Under expert guidance you will visit the wine-pressing station, the storage cellar and the wine bottling plant, as well as the bottle store. The visitor train takes you to the wine archive and the wooden barrel cellar. Afterwards, a wine and sparkling wine tasting from Baden will take place in the main building.
