Liberation Hall near Kelheim

Since 1863, the Liberation Hall has been enthroned on the Michelsberg high above the town of Kelheim and commemorates the victorious battles against Napoleon in the wars of liberation from 1813 to 1815. 18 colossal statues crown the buttresses on the exterior of the historic building.
