Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • Located on a hill facing the Theresa Park, where stands Oktoberfest (the feast of the booze). Statue dark and imposing, and frankly a bit pompous. The Gallery (the kind of parthenon located behind) contains busts in marble of the great men of the Germany. We made the turn in 5 minutes. A umpteenth trick of megalo Louis 1st of Bavaria. Visit rather Valhalla (the Hall of our friends Germans) near Regensburg, is in the same philosophy but with significantly more hangover in a sumptuous setting (see fact sheet on the present site).
