Hall of Fame and Statue of Bavaria – Munich

Picture: Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame above the Theresienwiese was built under King Ludwig I of Bavaria from 1843 to 1853 as a pantheon for celebrated Bavarians from the fields of politics, science and the arts.

The busts are displayed inside the columned hall with its three wings that was designed by Leo von Klenze; new figures have been added since 1966, when the tradition was recommenced.

The 18.52-metre statue of Bavaria, designed by Ludwig Schwanthaler, was cast by Ferdinand von Miller, and ranked in its day as a technological masterpiece. Inside the head is a viewing platform.
