Fasskeller ceremony

This event requires a minimum number of 25 people.

The historic Fasskeller is the heart of Auerbachs Keller, with wine first served here in 1525. History comes alive in this unique place when the Cellarmaster or devil invite guests to participate in the "Fasskeller ceremony", a popular and well-known spectacle.

The sensory feast commences with a "Mephisto's Fire" cocktail in the eponymous Mephisto Bar. The Cellarmaster then leads you down to the setting of so many tales, the aura of which moved the young Goethe to immortalise the legend of Faust in literature that was to become renowned worldwide - and with it, the cellar itself.

With the narration of the Cellarmaster in these historic vaults you will breathe in the spirit of history, hear and see impressive things. It is only during the course of this ceremony that the doors are opened to the lowest-lying room of Auerbachs Keller, the Hexenküche, or witches' kitchen. And only here can you mimic Faust and Mephisto in tasting the fabled rejuvenating potion in a rejuvenation ceremony. Whether or not this magic is sufficient to enable imbibers to fly from the cellar during the barrel ride is down to the individuals themselves. One thing is key, however: the culinary enjoyments that follow in the various vaults should not be missed at any cost.
