Hiking, History and Wine Festival

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.

From Hambach we go  by bus and train to Deidesheim.

Let's hope for a warm but not hot summer day.
