The view is great, especially during oktoberfest. Not much to see at the site. Many busts of famous men did not mean much to me since i do not speak german or know german history.

This grand statue is facing the Oktoberfest venue. Not so clean though with broken glasses everywhere, we just took photos infront but too tired to climb up the stairs.

These two monuments dominate the Theresienwiese, the grounds where Oktoberfest takes place every year. The statue representing Bavaria has some echoes of the Statue of Liberty and is equally huge. The big surprise is not just it’s huge size but that it’s hollow with an internal staircase which visitors can climb up. The equally large open gallery behind the statue holds a large number of busts of famous Bavarians. Both monuments are notable more for their size than any particular artistic or architectural merit.

A bronze statue on Theresienwiese in Munich, symbolizing the state of Bavaria and built by order of the King of Bavaria, Ludwig the First in 1843-1850. The height of the statue is 18.52 m. Inside the statue there is a staircase through which you can get to the observation deck in her head and from there to explore the surroundings. Beautiful, but unfortunately, a very worn statue. If at night the black color is almost imperceptible if you move away from it, then during the day it stands out from the background of its original color. Each of the three evenings that my wife and I spent in the city, we returned to the hotel walking past this statue, and each time there were a lot of people at its pedestal. Someone sat in pairs, someone in whole groups rode on skateboards or bicycles near it. One couple sat and talked, and next to them stood glasses of wine, as I suppose.

Quiet the surprise when we found out that the statue of Lady Bavaria was hollow - what an experience climbing all the way up to her head that was! It can be a bit claustrophobic but worth it - very heavy and suffocating inside when hot weather. The grounds and Hall of Fame seemed a bit run down and not very well looked after - sad to see something so beautiful not well looked after. Will recommend!
