I have researched Walhalla as an early 19th century memorial to German cultural nationalism and it was fantastic to see it in person! The location is really beautiful, the views are outstanding. The building itself is fascinating and imparts very clearly cultural not political nationalism...More

I've led my students here once again: the Walhalla does not need any introduction, but one's got to remark that the spirit of the Fichtean philosophy has now left its space to an overall European political and cultural idea. This masterpiece by Leo von Klenze...More
