  • The Hambach Castle is regarded as the cradle of democracy. Here some basic principles of democracy developed are far ahead of their implementation in the Constitution. The Hambacher Fest was the impetus to this memorable place. You can literally feel the good sides of this power and form of society. A journey that has paid off, especially because this place in such a picturesque landscape is located within one of the most beautiful wine regions of in Germany.

  • Interesting historical place to visit. The "Schloss" is much more of a palace than a castle, and has been recently renovated. The historical building preserves interesting facts about the german flag, at least the colours and the birth of democracy in Germany. The visit itself is quite small, and there is relatively small information on English, knowledge of German language is important to enjoy the visit.
  • Great historical place about democratie. Nice view all over the river rhine area at the bottom. Unfriendly stufig in the cafe area but worth to visit all the year around.
  • Great place to hear about the 1700 German history.
  • I rate the place, not the businesses. It's an important place for the region and for whole Germany. History alert! You should check out what happened here. The area is very nice, and you have a great view. On certain times it can be very crowded and that's for a reason.
  • Nice place, must visit.
