Great views over the Danube and the actual Walhalla building. Very grand building in the style of a Greek temple is pretty big so it will take some time to walk around it and the surrounding area. Parking cost 3€ and is very big so no problem finding a space. To enter the actual inside of Walhalla is an additional cost of 4.50€. There are also some minor food stalls and toilets that were clean and well maintained.
Pantheon- look like temple. Great view from it and must visit place.
