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.

  • Never been inside a statue! This is a must- just be aware that it can get rather warm inside - and very cosy - as it is a very small space!  more »
  • Whether tags, whether at night, the Bavaria statue with Lions is always worth a visit. The view from the Hill to the city centre is recommended. Located behind the Bavaria statue victory Hall skin to anyone though. But if you've been here and has time, is worth a short foray. If just no Oktoberfest on the Theresienwiese, one can park his car at the Bavaria ring and run across the square. If helpful, click Help.

  • The statue of Bavaria and the whole Park is a place that host the Beer Festival, I saw him in the summer and it is quite another thing, much quieter.

  • 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.
