The Ruhmeshalle (Hall of Fame), situated above the Theresienwiese, place for the largest Volksfest world-wide, the Oktoberfest, is an U-shaped open hall in Graeco-Roman style.

It was constructed from 1843 to 1853 by Leo von Klenze, under King Ludwig I of Bavaria.

It honours distinguished persons of Bavarian history. The bronze statue in front of the hall represents the State of Bavaria.

In summer it is open for public. You can enjoy a good view of the city skyline from the top of the statue.

Inside its head is a viewing platform.

 

 

 


Interesting to see all the faces of the honoured Bavarian people. Olympic Park is our next stop.
