The 19th-century Befreiungshalle Kelheim monument commemorates the victories against Napoleon during the Wars of Liberation. Admire the statues crowning the buttresses of the facade, allegories of Germanic tribes. They number 18 to represent the date of the Battle of the Nations at Leipzig (Oct. 18, 1813). Inside, you can read the dictum by King Ludwig I, which is embedded into the marble floor. Make sure to spend time taking in the superb views that the hilltop location provides.

    Stimulates itself with German history, in which Austria was always bound to deal. A monument for the liberation from the French yoke and a step towards the formation of a German nation State.

  • Wow, enormous building! You can have a beautiful view on Kelheim and the Danube from up here. In the hall itself there is not much to do, but its size is mindblowing.
  • A stunning monument to the Germanic victories over Napoleon.
  • Wow. Loved it. During the visit (03/17) the outside was mainly covered up due to repair work, but still worth the visit.
  • It is intersant for eating and coffe
  • A beautifu place.
