    Walhalla Temple

    The Walhalla temple is a hall of fame that honors laudable and distinguished Germans, famous personalities in German history — politicians, sovereigns, scientists and artists of the German tongue". The hall is housed in a neo-classical building above the Danube River, east of Regensburg, in Bavaria, Germany.

    The Walhalla temple is named for Valhalla of Norse mythology. It was conceived in 1807 by Crown Prince Ludwig, who built it upon ascending the throne of Bavaria as King Ludwig I. Construction took place between 1830 and 1842, under the supervision of architect Leo von Klenze.

    The temple displays some 65 plaques and 130 busts of persons, covering 2,000 years of history — the earliest person honored is Arminius, victor at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest (9 AD).

    Valhalla

    Strange isn't it? That a monument to Germanic greatness and the Afterlife is built as a Greco-Roman Temple. Oh well, time to learn Latin and Greek...

    The real Walhalla is an internal place in every germanic whether they find it or not.

    It is a place were the 'warriors', the thoughts and ideas, come from to fight the forces of darkness in your own mind. the Ragnaroek is fought first in YOUR head, later we will in this physical realm.

    Walhalla.

    Was there last month. Lot of warriors and old soldiers on the wall, but completely outnumbered by composers, poets, philosophers and scientists. I think that is pretty cool.

    Same day visited the Befreiungshalle:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Befreiungshalle

    and then drove like a bat out of hell to Leipzig, where I climbed another couple thousand steps (or so it seemed) to catch the view from above:

    Next morning ended up at another monument:

    Last trip in April I saw Deutsches Eck, Hermannsdenkmal and the Externsteine. All are worth the time.

    The Walhalla there is in the middle of a multi-kulti conversion as it houses illustrious germans like

    Einstein

    Alcuin (advisor to Charleleslaughterer in 'ecclesiastic' questions)

    Charleleslaughterer himself

    Sophie Scholl, terrorist

    A couple black sheep amongst a couple hundred is to be expected. I was thinking Hans Ulrich-Rudel and Von Manstein would make fitting additions as well....

    ....right beside a bust of yours truly.

    Some say that the ancient Greeks and Romans were nordics.
