Amazing stone work and views. Not a lot to do (except look at an awesome construction high above a beautiful river valley), but recommend it.

friends brought us up to Walhalla in the early evening -- the museum closes, but the grounds remain open. Great views of sunset over Regensburg, with the Danube at your feet. Many people out having a picnic, and many appeared to be on a date.

Took a boat cruise from Regensburg. Weather was perfect. Great views on the way as well as at Walhalla. The climb is moderately steep - doable for children and adults too. Nice place for an excursion from Regensburg.

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....More
