Great view
Oct 2019 • Solo
The view is great, especially during oktoberfest. Not much to see at the site. Many busts of famous men did not mean much to me since i do not speak german or know german history.

infront of Oktoberfest venue
Oct 2019
This grand statue is facing the Oktoberfest venue. Not so clean though with broken glasses everywhere, we just took photos infront but too tired to climb up the stairs.

Impressive sized monuments
Oct 2019 • Friends
These two monuments dominate the Theresienwiese, the grounds where Oktoberfest takes place every year. The statue representing Bavaria has some echoes of the Statue of Liberty and is equally huge. The big surprise is not just it’s huge size but that it’s hollow with an internal staircase which visitors can climb up. The equally large open gallery behind the statue holds a large number of busts of famous Bavarians. Both monuments are notable more for their size than any particular artistic or architectural merit.

Sightly but tired statue
Aug 2019
A bronze statue on Theresienwiese in Munich, symbolizing the state of Bavaria and built by order of the King of Bavaria, Ludwig the First in 1843-1850. The height of the statue is 18.52 m. Inside the statue there is a staircase through which you can get to the observation deck in her head and from there to explore the surroundings.
Beautiful, but unfortunately, a very worn statue. If at night the black color is almost imperceptible if you move away from it, then during the day it stands out from the background of its original color.
Each of the three evenings that my wife and I spent in the city, we returned to the hotel walking past this statue, and each time there were a lot of people at its pedestal. Someone sat in pairs, someone in whole groups rode on skateboards or bicycles near it. One couple sat and talked, and next to them stood glasses of wine, as I suppose.

What a surprise!
Jul 2019
Quiet the surprise when we found out that the statue of Lady Bavaria was hollow - what an experience climbing all the way up to her head that was! It can be a bit claustrophobic but worth it - very heavy and suffocating inside when hot weather. The grounds and Hall of Fame seemed a bit run down and not very well looked after - sad to see something so beautiful not well looked after. Will recommend!

Fabulous visit inside the Bavaria statue. A must!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Ever dreamed about visiting the inside of the Statue of Liberty? Well, the Bavaria statue is almost as nice, and completely without the hazzle. For €3,5 you can climb the stairs and get inside the statue’ head. No queue, no pre-booking. It’s astonishing how they have planned the stairs up the neck of the statue, making the head a room with two bronze couches. Every engineer, child and curious person will love to visit!

Lady Bavaria and the Hall of Fame
Jun 2019 • Solo
This monument is the Bavaria Hall of Fame and Monument to Bavaria.

The statue is of the patron and female personification of Bavaria. At over 18 metres high, she stands elegant and confident, overlooking the Theresienwiese. As one of the landmarks of Munich, it's a great photo opportunity.

Behind the Bavaria statue is the equally impressive and colossal building of the Hall of Fame. The corridors of the hall contains the busts of men and women who have contributed to the development of Bavaria. A walk through the wide corridors resembles a trip into Bavarian history, as the three-winged portico houses busts of important Bavarians from the last few centuries.

Disgraceful
Mar 2019 • Couples
The grounds around are littered with the glass of dozens of broken beer bottles, a danger to young children and pets. Bins are overflowing. The monument itself bears testimony to Munich's love of worthless graffiti.
Munich City should take a look at themselves..

Found this attraction on the way to a winter fair. A unique monument and several bust of famous people on display. Understand you can also wlak into the statue at certain times, and overlook the area where the October fest and winter carnaval are held. close to other attractions and subway.
