Here are the top 4 reasons you’ll want to take your Texas vacations during Wurstfest — Prost!

You'll find everything including giant Bavarian pretzels, pork schnitzel, wurst tacos, sauerkraut, strudel, potato pancakes with sausage, and so much more! The festival was initially named the "Salute to Sausage." Wurst is the German word for sausage, so "Wurstfest" literally means sausage festival, which means trying a variety of sausage is a must!
