Since May 1832, when the flag with the German national colours of black, red and gold first fluttered on the Kastanienberg near Neustadt, the Hambacher Schloss has come to stand for the cradle of German democracy. The new permanent exhibition entitled Hinauf, hinauf zum Schloss!  (Up and onwards to the castle!) presents a very vivid display of the events around the Hambacher Festival of 1832 with plenty of links to the present day.

You can visit the Hambacher Schloss and the Hinauf, hinauf zum Schloss! Exhibition all the year round daily from 10.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m. (November – March 11.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m.).

Audio guide:
An audio guide to accompany the exhibition is available in four languages (German, French, English and Polish).

Group tour:
A variety of english spoken tours and workshops are available for groups.

Schools can also book specially themed tours and workshops through our permanent exhibition.

We will also be happy to reserve a table for you in our Restaurant 1832 at the Hambach Castle for the time of your visit to the exhibition (tel.: 0 63 21 / 95 97 88 0).

There are breathtaking views from the Panorama Terrasse, the Roof Terrace and through the tall windows in Restaurant 1832 that was planned by the famous Swiss architect Max Dudler.
