  • Germans make viking haven a place on earth, with great views of the area. About a 10 minute walk up a slope from the car park. Visited on a nice sunny day in March, entrance to building closed at about 4pm, and so did the toilets that are set away from main building, but still have to pay to end car park up to 9pm.
  • Fantastic monument of German history... worthful to see... well maintained...
  • Very good place to visit. You can pay a little entry fee and step in the main hall too. It has a spectacular view from outside.
  • Beautiful place located in Donaustauf Regensburg. Walking to the top provides a great workout as opposed to driving. The views of the Donau river are just amazing.
  • Super cool place to relax your mind, beautiful view, very good to make photos
