Hambacher Schloss, Neustadt an der Weinstrasse

(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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 have booked the tour. Is recommended to get in into the topic to the firm Hambach castle on our part. You can then visit the exhibition following alone.

  • The location of the castle is unique - content boom. The exhibition up to the castle is a very good one and overview of the beginnings of the democracy in Germany and Europe

  • Beautifully renovated (very long building) monument of German history. Very beautiful lovingly renovated inside and out. Beautiful views over large parts of the Palatinate. Downside: parking fees!

  • 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.
