They say it is one of Germany's most important national monuments of the 19th century. Sits on top of a hill and commands an incredible view of the Danube River and valley. Had pay parking. Worth the visit and awesome view to sit and relax.

I have researched Walhalla as an early 19th century memorial to German cultural nationalism and it was fantastic to see it in person! The location is really beautiful, the views are outstanding. The building itself is fascinating and imparts very clearly cultural not political nationalism...More
