My dear workmate Niklas went to Düsseldorf on Saturday to join the festivities for the world's longest vegetarian bratwurst (101 meters) held by Metzgerei Schnitzel e.V.
Niklas kindly shared these pics with Gut Feelings, writing: "I am still somewhat dazzled by yesterday's events, but I am sure the photos give a first impression of the Wurst-Stimmung (vibe). Sadly I do not have any shots of Rüdiger Shaw (you couldn't make that up), the english-accented official of the Guiness Book Of Records who kept parading around, wearing a strict face and a big badge....
The best thing about the evening was that it was exactly like you would wish a "strassenfest" to be, what with the marching band, kids collecting empty bottles for sweets-money, and the general good natured spirit of things. i should go to düsseldorf more, really."
The rest of the photos below show the entire event from start to finish. Personally I find it very charming to see all these people coming together around a really long sausage.
The sausage was cooked on the disposable foil BBQ trays you can buy at every supermarket.
