The Walhalla - Review

This Teutonic Hall of Fame was built in honour of German-speaking artists, writers, philosophers, scientists, and other historic figures. Built over a period of 12 years (from 1830 to 1842), the idea of building this temple was conceived by King Ludwig I of Bavaria. This Greek revival monument was based on the Parthenon in Athens and was constructed under the guidance of architect Leo von Kienze. Sitting on a gigantic foundation of 358 marble steps, this white stone temple overlooks River Danube. According to the Teutonic mythology, the Hall of Fame (Walhalla) was used to bury the bravest killed warriors. As you enter inside this hall, you shall come across:

  • 128 marble busts and 65 plaques, reminiscent of prominent figures of the German-Teutonic language family.
  • The most prominent amongst these busts are those of King Ludwig I. (the founder of Walhalla), Barbarossa, Goethe, Schiller, Haydn, Luther, Gutenberg, Gauss and empress Katarina the Great.
  • There is a latest bust of Heinrich Heine which was added in 2010.
  • As you climb the plateau you will come across a wonderful view over the Danube to Regensburg and to the Bavarian Forest.

The Walhalla, Regensburg Reviews

  • What an amazing place to visit. Incredible view of the river flowing peacefully beneath. Parking place is o the bottom of the hill and then there is like 5min walk uphill through a calming forest. Definitely recommend to check this place out.

  • Very peaceful and tranquil place! You can walk up to it from the road it would be a bit of a hike, or take a car the car mid way then walk up the remainder of a few steps or slight hill depending on the direction you choose.

  • Great views, great building, and if you're interested in Germany's well-known historical persons you'll find them inside. Parking 2 euro, entrance 4 euro. I wasn't inside but I prefer the views.

  • The hall of fame as it is called for famous German people. The name of the place is from the Vikings heaven and the building design looks like an ancient temple of Greece. It is located on a hill of a very beautiful forest with perfect view of the Danube river.

  • Great place to visit when you are staying or comming to Regensburg. Imposant building, imposant views. Low entrance fees and good audio guide. Good opportunity to talk with your kids about some very importan historical figures grom very different periods of time and fields (from emperos, poets to Albert Einstein).
