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.

  • The monumental statue and a huge empty square. View not very interesting, because it comes to mind many different associations. The general impression of something here does not play. But the monument worth seeing, after all, is a symbol of Bavaria.

  • Get into a statue, really? In Bavaria, it's possible Yes, borrowing an iron spiral staircase... The Observatory is tiny, it is piled up to 2, 3 maximum - should not be claustrophobic! - but the height (about 20 m) allows to take the measure of the gigantic Theresienwiese. Long live the Oktoberfest!

  • The Bavaria with the underlying Hall of Fame is a landmark of Munich and should therefore be seen. The visit before you start the Oktoberfest Beer Festival is interesting, if you can see that the tents are built up. The statue can be entered against entry and you have a very good look at the Theresienwiese then from above.

  • 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.
