High up on the hill, the temple can be seen from far away. I went up with my friend who was driving which made it much easier to get to. It's an massive stone structure. Be prepared for large stairs and some pretty impressive views. I would recommend however you wait for a sunny day for this one. Cloud cover... More

Amazing views of the Danube from the hilltop site! Also beautiful architecture to see, and an interesting collection of busts of German historical figures inside the building. I recommend the Walhalla for a relaxing visit to observe beautiful sights.

I found the trip to Walhalla well worth the effort. We took the Boat Cruise up the Danube River from Regensburg, it's a 45min trip each way but worth going this way as you get to see all the lovely scenery while sitting back having morning tea and lunch on the way back. Walhala itself was very interesting, interesting to... More

It's a pleasant hike to the top of the hill with a beautiful, panoramic view to the Danube. You can get here either by the boat or bus from Regensburg. Personally, I prefer the boat ride for the view. The boat doesn't run all year round and usually close in early October. Walhalla is indeed grand. The marble architecture is... More

Built in the 19th Century it was meant to be a "Hall of Fame" to honour mainly heroes of the German nation. Indeed it is that but during the late 20th Century important world personages such as Mother Teresa have had their busts put in the pantheon. The Temple is a pleasant boat ride from Regensburg and a healthy hike... More

What can you say other than Breathtaking temple with the most magnificent views to be seen. Only negative is there needs to be some safety rails for kids as it can be dangerous for toddlers.

Walhalla Temple was a really beautiful building, worth seeing. But there isn't any English information, everything is in german.

There are some strange but awe-inspiring places in Germany that were not damaged during the WWll Walhalla is one. An over the top C19 Greek style temple in the middle of nowhere, commemorating celebrated (mostly male) German, or German speaking artists, politicians, scientists etc. Worth it for the overall experience, not necessarily the temple and busts therein. Also gives you... More
