  • You should have seen the Hambach Castle. Well, you can relax with a nice view. Because the weather was sunny, we have undertaken no visits. But there are local an information point, where you the "roughest" can learn.

  • Quite a nice view over the Rhine plain. Interesting for history enthusiasts. Nix for party! Hosting here.

  • The castle can be seen from far away and can be reached either on foot with a hike through the forest, almost up to the Castle by car or bicycle. For people who are not so good, even a shuttle runs to the top. Everything is currently prepared, visitor centre, the whole plant. The actual Castle is partially made of wall remains, partially of fully modern buildings with elevator and latest conference technology for the "Hambach - talks" and for weddings or other celebrations. The very interesting and not very large exhibition is located on the top floor is multimedia built and very suitable for children/young people. Top right next to the castle is still a restaurant with a beautiful terrace and wonderful view on the "foothills"

  • 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.
