Trip Planner: Europe / Germany / Bavaria / Upper Palatinate / Donaustauf / Walhalla
Walhalla celebrates laudable and distinguished people and famous personalities throughout 2,000 years of German history, including politicians, sovereigns, scientists, and artists "of the German tongue." Designed by architect Leo von Klenze, the building was completed in 1842. It now contains 65 plaques and 130 busts of people. The museum overlooks the Danube, so consider taking a boat ride to catch the best views. Make your Donaustauf itinerary with Klarna Trips to find out what to see and where to go.

Impressive, outstanding building. A few minutes by car from Regensburg away. Two parking places only a few minutes by feet away. Or you ride with a bike along the Donau. Perfect for a nice trip. Wonderful point of view.
It's quite a spectacular site, the views while you approach are magnificent. There is a cost to park and when you get to the top, if you want to look inside there is also a cost. I would just peek in inside as it is only that one room and not really worth the cost of going in. But I highly recommend coming having a picnic and taking in the great views of the Danube!!
We parked car, got our ticket (2,50€), and then began to head up the stairs. Once we reached the top after a short walk, I instantly spotted the main building and wow, it’s impressive. To the right are toilets, which were surprisingly clean, and a bit further ahead was the option to get some drinks and ice-cream. To the left is the Walhalla itself, and you can either take the stairs or head up the ramp to reach the inside. You can walk along the arcade, and head around the building to reach the front. There you can either enjoy the scenery and fantastic view, or head down the stairs to enjoy a different perspective. I walked down all of the stairs, and then decided to take the ‘forest’ walk back up. And gosh, that really wasn’t the best decision I ever made. Only take this walk if you are prepared for a steed walk up. If you want to, you can then head inside, which costs 4,50€ for a standard adult ticket. Currently only 35 people are allowed inside, and due to that I was able to take photo with not a lot of people walking around. I don’t know what numbers are usually allowed in, but if you want to enjoy it without masses of people, head there now or during the week. The hall had been built in the style of Greek temples, and inside you can find busts of “great men and women” important to German history. I personally found the older ones really interesting look-wise, but the more modern ones rather lacking in comparison. Inside you will also find a statue of Ludwig I. who was the one responsible for this building. You have to wear a mask inside, and on the outside you need to be a bit careful as most visitors didn’t really pay attention to keeping distance or wearing their masks where they should have. Overall the Walhalla is really worth a visit, especially if you like to take photos and enjoy the Greek architecture.
This neoclassical building in the form of a temple is located above the Danube river near Regensburg. During the summer months ( April to October) it’s open from 9 am till 6 pm but November till March it’s only open 10 am till 4 pm. During the summer months getting a parking can be bit challenging, parking cost 2,50 euros. It’s a beautiful structure and views are breathtaking and romantic. The place is super popular with young people and can be very crowded in the afternoons.
This is a spectacular must-see location. We opted for the boat tour from Regensburg to Walhalla and back. The boat tour includes German and English commentary about local sights and history. It's a fairly strenuous walk up the stairs to Walhalla, but I think it's manageable for many if you take breaks (lots of trees to rest under).
