Hambacher Schloss, 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. A visit to Hambacher Schloss represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Neustadt an der Weinstrasse trip planner to plot your vacation.

    The Hambach Castle is worth a short trip. Inclusive of a very interesting guided tour (maximum 25 P), plan well 2 hours immersed in German history. The Castle offers many photo opportunities and is a popular venue for events and exclusive parties. When visibility is good enough the good view over the Rhine plain, the Odenwald or direction of the black forest. Incidentally, now disabled expanded.

    Nice place to visit, FANTASTIC VIEWS. I did NOT pay for anything - if you want to pay, you can see more. The restaurant was even adequate.  more »

  • 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.
