Why should a Ring-motif be transformed into the theme representing Walhalla?
Are we to guess that the connexion of ideas is that Wotan had eventually to pay for Walhalla by the ring?
The more imposing of the two is the Walhalla, a costly reproduction of the Parthenon, erected as a Teutonic temple of fame on a hill rising from the Danube at Donaustauf, 6 m.
As visible signs of his permanent services to art Munich possesses the Walhalla, the Glyptothek, the two Pinakotheken, the Odeon, the University, and many other magnificent buildings both sacred and profane.
Special features are Kaemper Hall, Blair Castle, the Marble Temple and Walhalla.
