Walhalla is an amazing memorial to Germany's best and brightest. It's another one conceived by King Ludwig. Really impressive. It's also not static. New additions are still made.
We used the paid parking on the hill behind the temple requiring only a short stroll up...More

The building is just amazing from the proportions and location on a hill next to the river Danube. The view from the main entrance down over the river is just breathtaking. Also the history of the "hall of fame" for the German language region is...More
