The liberation hall is a monument on the Michelsberg above the city of Kelheim in Lower Bavaria. Seen from Regensburg, it stands upstream on the Danube at the confluence of the Altmühl and the Main-Danube Canal. The Liberation Hall was built in memory of the battles won against Napoleon during the Wars of Liberation from 1813 to 1815. The building was commissioned by King Ludwig I of Bavaria. Inside, 34 goddesses of white marble, designed by Ludwig Schwanthaler, are enough Hands to a festive round. They support 17 gilded shields, which are said to be made from the bronze melted down guns. Since the procurement of the large marble blocks from Silandro in Tyrol soon became difficult, only 6 figures could be created from this stone. For the remaining 28 goddesses, marble was brought from Carrara by water and transported to Michelsberg.
