The Walhalla is an outstanding example of classical architecture of the 19th century and resembles externally outside the Greek Parthenon in Athens. Situated on a hill in Donaustauf it is high above the Danube Valley and therefore already seen from afar. Currently, 65 plaques and 130 marble busts honor important personalities.

Inspired by the idea of King Ludwig I, to build a tempel in honor of the "glorious excellent Germans", the Walhalla was built 1830 - 1842 according to the plans of the former court architect Leo von Klenze. The opening ceremony took place on 18 October 1842.

In addition, a visit to the Walhalla can be combined wonderfully with a boat trip on the Danube, for example by bus from Regensburg to Walhalla and back with the ship. For detailed information on the passenger navigation, please visit www.donauschiffahrt.de and www.schifffahrtklinger.de.
