Designed by architect Leo von Klenze, the building was completed in 1842. It now contains 65 plaques and 130 busts of people.

  • 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.

  • What an amazing place to visit. Incredible view of the river flowing peacefully beneath. Parking place is o the bottom of the hill and then there is like 5min walk uphill through a calming forest. Definitely recommend to check this place out.
  • 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.
  • Great place to visit when you are staying or comming to Regensburg. Imposant building, imposant views. Low entrance fees and good audio guide. Good opportunity to talk with your kids about some very importan historical figures grom very different periods of time and fields (from emperos, poets to Albert Einstein).
  • 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!
  • Awesome view and great place to spend an afternoon.
