Hambacher Schloss, Neustadt an der Weinstrasse

4.1
#24 of 187 in Historic Sites in Rhineland-Palatinate
Castle Tourist Spot
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. Our Neustadt an der Weinstrasse itinerary planner makes visiting Hambacher Schloss and other Neustadt an der Weinstrasse attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We were traveling with our family in the Rhineland-Palatinate. Although we come from RLP we were here for the first time. It's worth a visit. Great views from the castle in the environment, as well as the Museum in the Castle.

  • The "rise" of the car park is only a short and not hard, you don't need the shuttle normally. The castle looks great even from the outside, the visitors centre is informative and... then the exhibition. Recommended in every respect. Hard to describe, that you have to experience!

  • 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.
  • 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 views from the top. Rich in Hisotry.
  • I like the convenience of this place. Great date location.
  • 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.
