Explore the German Wineroad. Hambach
Hambach, is part of Neustadt an der Weinstrasse.
Above the village you find the Hambach Castle, which is considered to be the cradle of German democracy since in 1832 a hughe demonstration for freedom took place, the «Hambach Festival». Due to the fact that political demonstrations had been banned at the time by the Bavarian King the event had been tagged as a festival. This event made an impact to German society which still can be found in today's routine life. The sources are worth to be visited and studied and they are displayed in perfection. Châpeau.
