Volkswagens are known for having trouble with their transmissions, even more so in the 1st couple generations. This problem could just be your transmission sticking when getting into another gear. I recommend not pushing the car so your running at high RPMs, slowly work your way up that hill, and even try letting off the gas it may help it shift some. If you're really concerned with it you can take it somewhere to get the transmission checked, something maybe slipping or sticking it all depends and it can be a small inexpensive fix or it could be a heck of a lot, but its all up to you.

There's a relay on the brake pedal arm that actuates when you press the brake pedal. This releases the lock on the shifter, so you can shift out of Park. VW's are notorious for having issues with this relay. Stick your head down by the brake pedal and you'll see where the pedal arm hits the relay. It's more than likely stuck, and may not need to be replaced. I'm guess you probably have no brake lights either...
