German Stamp: Hambacher Schloss
Hambach Castle is located on the mountain Schlossberg in the eastern outskirts of the Palatine Forest in Germany.
It is considered a symbol of the German democracy movement. The Hambach Fest, a German national democratic festival and one of the main public demonstrations in support of German unity, freedom and democracy during the Vormärz era, was celebrated in the castle. The festival ran between May 27 and 30 in 1832.
