Impressive monument with stunning views. Worth stopping for the view alone. Easily accessible by car with a short walk. Re commended.

The views are really beautiful - there is a river, mountains, forests etc. The monument looks great as well. The only downside is that it is not free and there is not much to see for the money.

The Befreiungshalle is located on top of a hill which you can either access by foot, bycicling or car. Its a beautiful architecture inside and outside and on top of it you´ll have a good view over Kelheim.

Big round hall commemorating the German wars against Napoleon in the first part of the 19th Century. Interesting and with good views over the river.

Half of the scaffolding is down so you can now see what the renovations look like. The building is huge and the Angels take your breath away as you first walk in. The €3.50 is fair as you couldn't spend a long time in the...More
