Ruhmeshalle, Munich

(4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Climb up into the head of Ruhmeshalle, the imposing classical bronze sand-cast statue built in the 19th century to personify the strength and glory of Bavaria. The first statue since Classical Antiquity to be made of solid cast bronze, the 87.36 metric ton (96.3 ton) monument was commissioned by Ludwig I of Bavaria to mark the period of peace after Napoleon's defeat in 1813. You'll ascend an 18.5 m (60.7 ft) circular staircase leading up to the statue's head, where you'll look out through her helmet to breathtaking vistas of the Theresienwiese and downtown Munich. Plan to see Ruhmeshalle and other attractions that appeal to you using our Munich tourist route planner.

  • Huge area, which is reserved for Munich different festivals, particularly for October Beer Fest. You won't miss it if you come to the festival. 
  • This is one of the monuments to visit if you are on a trip to Munich, of course and a monument located at the brewfest area. You can climb the statue and there is a nice overview. Even during winter when you live a very impressive panorama snow there, beautiful.

  • It is worth just to climb up the stairs. Although we went there early in the morning and could not climb up the statue unfortunately. It was also an early December morning so it seemed a bit desolate....  more »

  • A Bavaria(estatua de 1850 patrona da Baviera) com o Hall da Fama. Quem mandou construir foi o rei Luis I, na época era um campo (die Wiesn) fora da cidade, onde teve lugar em 1810 a festa de casamento com a princesa Teresa de Saxe-Hildburghausen. Origem da hoje assim chamada Oktoberfest. Se pode subir até a cabeça estatua da Bavaria.
