Für eine Besichtigung von außen lohnt z.Zt. die Besichtigung w. Renovierungsarbeiten nicht. Aufgrund der exponierten Lage hat man jedoch einen guten Blick auch auf den Donaudurchbruch.For a visit from the outside, the tour currently not worth w. renovations. Due to the exposed location, but is a good view on the Danube Gorge.show original

A monumental building and a landmark of Kelheim.
Elena Marie MeyerBefreiungshalle erected on the Michelsberg in the estuary Delta of the rivers Danube and Altmühl, once site of the 120 BC, created eisenzeitlich Celtic oppidum Alkimoennis, in the middle of the 19th century under King Ludwig I of Bavaria. Who created against the background of the pursuit of national unity, is leaning on to ancient and Christian basilica and neo-classical elements operative have pimped Rotunda reminiscent of the victorious battles of the allied powers against the Napoleonic France between 1813 and 1815. The still-noticeable long make very worthwhile visiting the mountain plateau history and panoramic views, Kelheim and the Danube.show original
Lucas HildAn incredibly beautiful place. Unfortunately, a side of the liberation Hall is being renovated currently. Inside are many angels. You can go to get a better overview on the High Gallery. The Hall is really recommended and should be looked at in any case.show original
