  • Impressive! More there is here b. not to say! Should we have seen in any case! Both the views on the way to the Hall (the Danube from "above"), the Hall from outside and from the inside, of course! Simply madness! What was built really hard to describe with words.

  • 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.

  • Really impressive interior, a very nice view of the Danube outside. Entry price is more than fair.
  • Lovely building and great views. Worth a visit.
  • impressive building above the city of Kelheim with phenomenal views to the valley of the rivers Danube and Altmühl.
  • 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 very nice and magnificent structure with scenic surrounding.
