Hambacher Schloss
Germany

The Hambacher Schloss is considered as one of the symbols of democracy in Germany since the Hambacher Fest in 1832. The discontent of the people of Palatinae, at the time goverened by Bavaria boiled over in 1832 because the government retracted certain rights which had been established by the French revolutioon just a few years before. At that time the castle was a ruin.

It was extensively restored for its 150th anniversary in 1982 and seres since then a a symbol of democracy and as one of the oundations of the modern Germany.

You have very nice views over the Rhine valley from the castle.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
