Very cool, but don't climb if you don't like tight spaces

The Bavaria Statue is an amazing enough piece from the outside, but paying 3.50 to go in and climb to the top was worth it for the novelty. Note that it's not open to climb during... read more

The Bavaria Statue is an amazing enough piece from the outside, but paying 3.50 to go in and climb to the top was worth it for the novelty. Note that it's not open to climb during winter months, and if you go, go early in the day if it's above 60 degrees. The first part of the climb is stone... More

Never been inside a statue! This is a must- just be aware that it can get rather warm inside - and very cosy - as it is a very small space!

Huge area, which is reserved for Munich different festivals, particularly for October Beer Fest. You won't miss it if you come to the festival.

It is worth just to climb up the stairs. Although we went there early in the morning and could not climb up the statue unfortunately. It was also an early December morning so it seemed a bit desolate. I am sure without the construction fencing and more crowds this would be a worthy stop.

Perfect time to visit: a rainy summer day, shortly before closing (last climb at 17:30!). Not recommended for claustrophobic people, as it gets really low and tight high up around the neck of the monument. Otherwise: the climb is a delightful thing and gets you the inside view of things, literally. The monument looks much bigger on the inside, it... More

Does the statue seem tall from the distance? Well, it seems even taller when you are ascending the spiral staircase hidden in it. It is truly a unique experience, albeit quite hot in the huge metal case in summer yet not unbearably hot. Once on the top of the stairs, you literally sit on wonderfully forged "armchairs" in Bavaria's head.... More

The magnificient 70 tons and 18 metre bronze lady statue is said to be a symbol and guardian of Bavaria. There is a spiral staircase inside the body which leads up to a narrow viewing platform at the head of the statue for a view of the Theresiawiesen fairground where major events in Munich including the well known annual Oktoberfest...
