  • After lunch in a restaurant in Regensburg, we took the bus, accompanied by Italian guide, to visit Walhalla. About 10 kilometres is Donaustauf. It is a neoclassical Temple, built by King Ludwig I of Bavaria, inspired by the Parthenon in Athens to commemorate, in the Nordic tradition of Valhalla (the place where they gathered the souls of heroes who have died at war) the Germans most illustrious history. In addition to King Ludwig I (founder), to say some, there are Frederick Barbarossa, Goethe, Gutenberg, etc. There is also the Empress of Russia Catherine II: This means that there are notable German language and therefore not only Germans. Unfortunately, we couldn't get, because we entered after 15:45. It also enjoys a beautiful view over Regensburg and the Danube.

  • As a guide of an international travel group I planned a short visit by 45 minutes on the Walhalla. End of November at 9: 30 in the morning aired the Temple in the light of the morning sun under a blue sky. The sight and the views were already intoxicating. The group photo on the steps ideal for a reminder before the temple opened its doors and the group inspected the long series of busts of English-speaking celebrities. Yes, also Dutch, English, and Austrian people are to the surprise of many including. Many discussions are linked to the name of one or the other. After 30 minutes, the Group was through. Without leaders and words you had conveys get an excerpt of in German history.

  • There are several ways to get into Valhalla. Traditional heroic fall into battle with a sword in hand and a name of Odin on his lips. And modern, with bus number 5 from Regensburg to Donaushtafa. The second method gives you a chance to get back into Regensburg, its disadvantages-lack of Valkyries and, consequently, the need to climb the high Hill on foot (about 300 steps). or by the district forest road. Bus 5 goes straight to the Hauptbanhof, better take Tage-Ticket +2 1 Zone-cost 4.90 euros (round trip + can travel for the remainder of the day Regensburgu). Buses times in 20-40 minutes on Saturday, hourly on Sunday. and quite often during the week. Walhalla (Valhalla or Valhalla, who like ...)-a typical manifestation of German romanticism ... they are macabre romantics, these Germans ... Museum of "outstanding media German language". where you can meet Russian Empress Catherine II, Austrian Maria Theresia moravaka, Gregor Mendel, the Dutchman Erasmus, Einstein ... in the center sits modestly Museum creator Louis the Bavarian. In General, a selection of 1950s this honour pretty strange-along with sonorous names, there are a number of local rulers, which hardly someone heard. But I'm not strong in German history. Louis was a better:-) By the way, the Museum is replenished, the modern Sage Konrad Adenauer. Valhalla itself is very similar to the Parthenon, the dimensions match even though looks newer. Question-is it worth to visit the Valhalla? the simple answer is no. If you have a bit of soul of German romanticism (with an emphasis on "romanticism")-YES! Yes, and from a hill awesome. In addition, you can say "I was in Valhalla. and back "

  • 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.
