  • It's a pleasant hike to the top of the hill with a beautiful, panoramic view to the Danube. You can get here either by the boat or bus from Regensburg. Personally, I prefer the boat ride for the view....  more »
  • Beautiful architecture and with a view of the river Danube. Inside the temple honors great personalities of the country with marble busts.

  • This Hall of Fame has something very special: it is not only the many busts of famous German in the Walhalla and not the magnificent neo-classical building of the King Ludwig I, no it is beyond this special place high above the Danube, the city Donaustauf and place Sulzbach on the Danube with views to one side far beyond Regensburg, and on the other hand far beyond Straubing. Old and young people, domestic and foreigners, motorcycle riders and car drivers, they all make a pilgrimage to the temple the short, moderately steep footpath through the forest and stay some minutes and sometimes whole hours before the construction, sit quite taken on the high levels and look into the distance or down into the Valley, where the Danube River paves its way. Insider's Tip: Up here on the slopes of the Danube close to Regensburg's Upper Palatinate wine is grown indeed. Not so nice and little family-friendly: Parking costs EUR 2.50 (since it is worth and if the car to leave and take the footpath through the Woods!) and even the reduced entrance fee is EUR 3,--!

  • 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.
