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.

  • Entering from the right side of the square hosts Oktoberfest we finds himself facing, and despite the distance, his Majesty makes it seem really close! Climb the stairway to see from above the expanse of people is a must!

  • This is a very large statue. She can be visited at night and during the day well. At times of the Oktoberfest, it is a feast for the eye. Behind the statue is the Hall of Fame. The Bavaria is located on the edge of the Theresienwiese, where also the Oktoberfest takes place. The best views of the Bavaria is therefore the Theresienwiese Oktoberfest grounds. Feel free to look at this beautiful building.

  • 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.
