The wine region in the beer country of Germany
Don´t miss the most spectacular wine celebration of the region:
The largest wine festival and the largest wine barrel in the world at Bad Dürkheim.
Naturally we also know something about beer brewing. If you would like to convince yourself, then try a
regionally brewed beer in one of the many beautiful beer gardens or directly in a brewery and learn about
the German purity laws and regulations required when brewing beer.

67433 Neustadt an der Weinstraße
This is definitely something you must see - the large castles of the region:
“…..come, come, free citizens, to the castle, to the castle, the German colours are hoisted.”
The black-red-golden tricolour was first displayed at the Hambach Festival in the year 1832.
The colours symbolize the strive for freedom, civil rights and German unity.
The celebrations at the Castle Hambach, near ‘Neustadt an der Weinstrasse’ became the symbol
of the historical German Democratic Movement. It is therefore almost an obligation
to visit this place which is “the cradle of German democracy”.
“Schloß Auerbach” (Castle Auerbach)
You will be feasting like the knights Kunibert and Kunigunde when dining at the
“Rittermahl Auerbach” (Knight’s feast Auerbach). Did you ever want to disappear back
into medieval times and dance and feast as the knights did to the music and the
“Gaukelei” (ugglery) of the Middle Ages? Event catering at Castle Auerbach offers many
diverse experiences: Family knight feast, public knight feasts or the “Nibelungenrittermahl”
(Nibelungen Knight Feast). In addition you can be introduced to the “Erlebnisfalknerei”
(adventure falconry) in an entertaining way: the fascinating life and the various types of
falcons and hawks of the Auerbach castle.
Nightlife (VERY small excerpt...)
Okay, we are not New York City. But nevertheless the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region has a nightlife, too.
It is easy to get in touch with people in some of the nice little bars or "Weinstuben".
And if You have to have a guiness or other "non-german" beverages: no problem. We have irish pubs, caribbean bars, a mexican, Japanese .... .
