#2 of 17 in Sightseeing in Kelheim
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
