Neustadt on the Wine Route — the cherry on top of a beautiful day!

Located in the Palatinate region on the German “Wine Route”, Neustadt and its wine villages will capture your heart. Surrounded by a sea of grapevines, the city is a centre of German viticulture. As well as for its wine culture, Neustadt became famous for Hambach Castle, which was the scenery of the Hambacher Fest in 1832.

Neustadt stretches from the Rhineland Plain to the Palatinate Forest Nature Park. In addition, there are 12 protected wilderness areas, castles, palaces and numerous other attractions; artistic sculptures weave their way through the town centre. It is worthwhile taking a stroll through the living, historical old quarters to see the idyllic half-timbered houses, a collegiate church from the 14th century, romantic winding streets and courtyards with Mediterranean vegetation, welcoming restaurants, the city’s oldest wine bar (from 1595), small shops, galleries and much, much more. The German Grape Harvest Festival at the end of September/beginning of October includes the selection of the German Wine Queen and is the highlight of the Grape Harvest Festival season. This city may inspire you, as anyone who has ever been there noticed before!
