Place: Kelheim, Germany
Date: 2nd February 2008
Team: I had been to this place with my Manager Henry Kuenzel and his wife.
It has been more 6 months since I travelled to Germany. I was seeing all my pictures and thought I must write about Kelheim.
Kelheim is about 1-2 hours drive from Regensburg. This place has a few very interesting monuments. I had collected some historical information from the place which I thought I should put it on my website for others to read.
The first place we went to is called:
Liberation Hall King Ludwig I
On top of Michelsberg, high above the town you can see Kelheim’s Landmark, Liberation Hall. King Ludwig I., of Bavaria had this monumental round building erected in commemoration of the wars of liberation from Napoleon (1813-15). It was realized by the famous Munich architect Leo von Klenze within 21 years’ time (1842-63).
It has a 7-meter -high enterance door and the shields of goddesses of victory inside the monument are made of particular material: bronze of conquered French canons.
