  • The pictures already of course view the grandeur of Walhalla. The place is so serene and charming that it's easy to lose track of time there. Inside are homages to the Germans who renovated positively the science, politics, customs and several other areas. They have an audio guide in English for those who want to understand more about the place, this guide is not for free. I hope this information has been useful! Have a good trip! :D

  • As part of Bavarian history, a visit to the Walhalla is compulsory program. An impressive building which was dedicated to personalities "teutscher tongue" by King Ludwig I. Currently 130 busts and 65 plaques are on display, the Bavarian Council of Ministers must decide on possible extensions. Who wants to enjoy the full extent of architecture and environment, should the visit schedule but he is spared by a smoke screen (which was unfortunately present during our visit). In good weather, this site offers breathtaking views of the surrounding area.

  • Delays of about 45 minutes from the highway is worth it. The last of about 500 m away from the monuments after the Bavarian King Louis i. €2, €4 Car person.

  • 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.
