Hermann von Valta (born August 27, 1900 in Munich , † November 27, 1968 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen ) was a German bobsleigh driver .


Hermann von Valta started for the SC Riessersee . At the Bobsleigh World Championship in 1934 he won the title in the four-man bobsleigh on the home track of pilot Hanns Kilian in Garmisch-Partenkirchen together with Fritz Schwarz and Sebastian Huber . The following year at the 1935 World Bobsleigh Championship in St. Moritz, the title was defended, with Alexander Gruber sitting in the bobsleigh for Sebastian Huber. At the 1936 Olympic Games in his hometown of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, von Valta and Kilian were the best-placed German in both competitions, but fifth in the two-man bobsleigh and seventh in the four-man bobsleigh, he clearly missed the medal ranks.

After his career, Hermann von Valta was head of the Agricultural Office in Augsburg and also headed the agricultural school there.
