4.1
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse
Because the famous Hambacher Fest took place here in 1832, Hambacher Schloss, a restored castle, has become a symbol of the German democracy movement. After admiring the architecture of the structure, head inside to view the exhibits. Many of them are interactive and display old artifacts. If you can't read the German descriptions at the site, consider getting an audio guide.

  • I went with my girlfriend on February 27 to Hambacher to visit the Castle, at the beginning we were a little confused since the tracks are under construction, per finely arrived at the top of the Castle where we could see the same architecture and beautiful view of all the people. In the castle there are information panels in English and German.

  • In a beautiful, clear winter weather super great view. The short hike from the parking lot around the mountain is also the little no difficulties. The exhibition in the castle is interesting and interactive elements also "children-friendly". The entire staff was very friendly and obliging.

  • Very nice view. And very good time here. Nice schloss.
  • Easily accessible through public transport but with less frequency. We took the bus, 502, from Neustadt hbf. It has a beautiful view from the top. Must to visit if you are a student from Kaiserslautern with the free Vrn pass ;)
  • Nice castle atop a mountain. Lots and lots of fresh oxygen😊
  • The view is amazing from the castle. The museum is very interesting, although all text is in german. Audioguides in English/German are available for 3€. The museum also has some interactive sections for kids.
  • It's good for 1hr visit , Hestorical place, nice views.
