Walhalla celebrates laudable and distinguished people and famous personalities throughout 2,000 years of German history, including politicians, sovereigns, scientists, and artists "of the German tongue." Designed by architect Leo von Klenze, the building was completed in 1842. It now contains 65 plaques and 130 busts of people. The museum overlooks the Danube, so consider taking a boat ride to catch the best views.

  • Impressive it looks, the Walhalla - uncontested. The Temple in pseudo Greek (= klassizistischer) architecture fits but neither in the region, yet he is culturally relevant. Sure, it offers a good opportunity to recall the significant personalities in the memory, which have found a place with 130 busts and 65 plaques. Whether this mnemonic device €4 per person is worth one, everyone must decide for themselves. You should control the lower parking lot and upward climb over the stairs, if you have enough time. Because parking directly below (3 minutes climbing stairs or 5 minutes on a roadway running) costs € 2.50... no matter how long you stay. Since most treatment only shoot a few panoramic photos and then again continue, borders the real rip off. The Outlook is however really great and orientation, you have the chance at a magnificent sunset view over the Danube valley.

  • What can you say other than Breathtaking temple with the most magnificent views to be seen. Only negative is there needs to be some safety rails for kids as it can be dangerous for toddlers. 
  • 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.
  • good place to go nice view of Donau river
  • I have been there almost 10 years ago. We cycled from Regensburg for a picnick and beers. A perfect one day trip out of the city :D
  • Beautiful bike ride from Regensburg! Nice beer garden near there. I recommend!
