A house which appears in a movie The Danish Girl. Loved this place.

Really Great art Nouveau house with amazing little details everywhere. Can probably seen in 30m or so and you need to leave everything in the lockers before going in!

Beautiful breathtaking architecture, too bad you can't take photos inside. Definitely worth a visit for anyone who appreciates beauty and art.

Very unusual: no pictures allowed. Had to leave mobile in the locker. Maybe it’s better to buy a book instead of ticket

Wonderful piece of Brussels architecture. Art nouveau. Best going during the week. Closes at 5 pm 10 EUR. A small paper guide to read about before you explore the house.

Walhalla Memorial

The Walhalla is a hall of fame that honors laudable and distinguished people in German history. The hall is a neo-classical building above the Danube River. The Walhalla is named for the Valhalla of Norse mythology. It was conceived in 1807 by Crown Prince Ludwig in order to support the then-gathering momentum for the unification of the many German states. Following his accession to the throne of Bavaria, construction took place between 1830 and 1842 under the supervision of the architect Leo von Klenze.

The memorial displays some 65 plaques and 130 busts covering 2,000 years of history, beginning with Arminius, victor at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD.
