Visit to Hambach Castle

Recently the members of the Department of Geography, Heidelberg University visited Hambach Castle nearby across the Rhine valley in Rhineland-Palatinate.
It is considered the symbol of the German Democracy movement because of the Hambacher Fest from 1832. (see playmobil photo)

The trip of the institute included a nice hike through the hilly forests, a guided tour through the castle and exhibiton and a nice dinner in a beer garden. It was very interesting and also quite some fun in the really hot sun.
