We visited a Grecian architecture called Walhalla in the outskirts of Regensburg. It’s a good 30-minute bus ride from the city center and the buses only arrive every one hour. We also had to walk all the way up to the place for 15 minutes.
I’m not really sure if it was patterned after Greece’s Parthenon but it sure hell looks like a renovated version of it.
We weren’t able to go inside the place since it’s still under construction and we didn’t think it’s worth paying 2 euros just to see an unfinished inside. Besides, it’s just full of German busts. What’s more interesting in this place though is the majestic and enchanting view of Regensburg from the top.
Used my camera’s second lens to mega zoom. Forgive me for using these camera terms loosely. I’m no expert in this.
Sparkling like glitters under the sun
Sam, I, and Anna. It was warm that day and we were all wearing shorts.
Took me a lot of effort to climb those big steps
Spot me! :)
Oh, this is a cute one :)) We found a couple doing their pre-nup photoshoot in Walhalla.
So much cheese!
I found Walhalla very pretty and peaceful. It’s one of those places where you can sit on the grass and do some meditation.
So when my mom decided to visit me on November, Walhalla was part of our itinerary.
It was already cold when she went there. Notice the foggy surrounding and the lack of tourists? We were the only crazy people who thought of climbing up the place on a cold, cold November day.
Instead of the average 15-minute walk, I think it took us around 30 minutes to get to the top. I was already begging my mom to walk faster but she confessed that it’s been a while since she last did some exercise and her body is certainly not prepared for this. I think she’s getting old.
We packed lunch and ate there. My mom prepared salad and dumplings which were really, really good. We laughed when we saw a pregnant woman and her husband touring the place also. I teased her about it, “Daig ka pa ng buntis Ma, nauna pa sila nakaakyat dito.” We stayed there for an hour, just observing the view and talking about life. Like me, she was also amazed with what she saw and felt thankful for having the opportunity to witness such. We finally decided to go down when the cold weather became unbearable for us. It certainly was a fun and memorable mother-daughter bonding experience.
Yeah, like a terrorist.
