Walhalla monument
View of the Walhalla main hall

The Walhalla monument is a Hall of Fame and Honor for "laudable and distinguished Germans" located near Regensburg and is one of the major artistic creations of the Bavarian King Ludwig I. Constructed by the well-known architect Leo von Klenze between 1830-1842, the Walhalla is one of the many cultural attractions on the Danube. The temple is built in Doric style, one of the grandest and most beautiful monuments built by the Bavarian King for the Germans. A huge entry gate leads to the interior. The Walhalla memorial commemorates important Germans and figures linked in some way to the history and people of Germany since 1842 in the form of marble busts and memorial plaques. The monument is considered the most important classical building of the 19th century.

Hours: April - September 9am - 5:45pm, October 10 am - 11:45am and pm - 3:45pm, November - March 9am - 4:45pm.
