"The Fassbau - the barrel wing" Grosses Fass Tip by sandysmith
Grosses Fass, Heidelberg: 9 reviews and 14 photos
This wing was specially constructed to hold two gigantic wine-barrels. The 1751 barrel holds 221,726 litres, the 1662 barrel a mere 45,000 litres. The guardian of the barrels at one time was a dwarf named Perkeo - he was said to have drunk 10-12 lites of wine a day and lived to the 'ripe' age of 83 when he died after drinking a glass of water. Must have been the shock to the system!
