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. Make your Donaustauf itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • Beautiful architecture and busts. I would’ve liked more information on all the people featured here but overall I enjoyed my visit. I even had the place to myself for a bit! The view and weather would...  more »
  • We visited one with wonderful weather the Walhalla one day and enjoyed the wonderful views of landscape and the sight of the imposing structure. Basically this is free to enter in outdoor areas and also a look inside is possible because only the entrance tickets need to be resolved. We have saved the audio guide us, but the Internet has certainly also its opportunities to inform, what we have done unknown "heads" with us. We have certainly spent quite some time in the Walhalla and enjoyed the impressive building. Noticed two points are negative. Of course, the area is very large, but also the large stone stairs not very neat worked for example by cigarette butts lying around. It is also a pity that the ticket booth is inside and so the venerable atmosphere disturbs some. This is for example the Befreiungshalle better solved. Here the ticket fires right after the parking lot and there is a turnstile at the entrance.

  • After the liberation the Walhalla Hall. This exposed location on the Danube is impressive. After a decent walk to reach the building and faces an imposing size. Inside and out handsomely, maintained and historically very driving worth being. The entrance fee is reasonable, you can see that the money is well spent.

  • The hall of fame as it is called for famous German people. The name of the place is from the Vikings heaven and the building design looks like an ancient temple of Greece. It is located on a hill of a very beautiful forest with perfect view of the Danube river.
  • A monument of charm. It rises above a hill from which you enjoy a wonderful view of the Danube valley. There are more roads to arrive: one is a suggestive trail in the wood that comes to the back of the building; Another is the large stone step that flows from the river to the temple. Whoever goes from here must visit it!
  • Beautiful place to have a picnik in the warmer months. This amazing building sits on top of a hill that has a wonderful view of the river. You can either drive to the top, or you can take a boat ride from Regensburg and hike to the top of the hill. If you are close to Regensburg, I recommend this to everyone.
  • Take the bus near the train station in Regensburg. Bus stops near the river and... you see Walhalla. Wow! It is great, enormous... like a classic Greek temple. Surprised by its 'seriuos white colums', the blue sky and the 'Blaue Donau', the neverending stairs, the green of the trees... then you enter in a big magic marbled place, with painted stars on the blue ceiling and many many white German statues... Now start to see who was German and made history. Very very nice. Remember to bring water with you, as there is nothing to drink.
  • Boat tour on the Danube from Regensburg to Walhalla. Relaxing way to discover the area at a reasonable price.
