  • I went to see him at dawn. The Sun just dawned, the Danube at his feet and a great day sailing from pity it was closed and I couldn't get in. I remember the times, but it was still beautiful

  • This building looks don't Center lot with area of Germany where it dominates the whole area from above and gives a spectacular view over the Danube that flows at its feet. The building is typical of Greek temples, with beautiful white pillars, inside commemorative monuments of Germany.

  • Amazing views of the Danube from the hilltop site! Also beautiful architecture to see, and an interesting collection of busts of German historical figures inside the building. I recommend the Walhalla...  more »

  • Not so far from regensburg hbf.. nice view to see from here...
  • Awesome panoramic views! A lot of Historic
  • Historical place, recommend to arrive via boat trip from Regensburg on Danube river.
  • Super view! Incredible scenery with unique picture opportunities. Also, great for any Pokémon hunters - charmander galore. Caught 10 in an hour. Excellent location for a family day out. Bring some lunch and relax on the grass or big stairs. Remarkable piece of architecture with the modern Pokémon twist of 3 gyms and about 4 or 5 Pokestops. Happy hunting and enjoy the view! 😀
  • Such an amazing experience. Arrived here via boat and it was magical watching it on the approach. Would definitely recommend as an add on to Regensburg.
