Took the recommendation to see this monument at night to appreciate the lighting effects. It it's an extraordinary and massive monument. My only regret is that I arrived to late to see the inside of the monument but hope to return

One of the worst battles in human history, this monument reminds about it. Do me the favor and read into the Voelkerschlacht before you visit. It is most excellent and highly recommended!

This unique monument affords a great view of Leipzig and beautiful surrounding countryside. It is a gargantuan stone mausoleum dedicated to those fallen in 1813 Napoleonic Wars. Napoleon was there in that village directing. That is all cool history and this museum has interesting pieces...More

Feels like medieval period. It is a massive temple protected by giant nights. A fantastic architectural achievement that makes you feel in another dimension. At the top you can have a very good view if the city; although be prepared for climbing 500 steps by...More

Stop off after work and got the view with lights on it. Everything was locked up to view inside, which was a pity. Glad we made the decision to find this monument and see how impressive it is up close.

Amazing visit. A wonder. I recommend visiting to explore why and how it was built. A fete of engineering

Absolutely stunning!I was worried of having troubles in finding it but it's so imponent that was the first thing that caught my attention just after jumping off the tram. Huge statues that reminded me of assassin's creed and quite impressive architecture. Only bad point is...More

This place looks like something from Game of Thrones. It’s great to climb to the top and see a view over Leipzig. Not for the faint hearted with all the steps, but worth it at the top. Not much explanation inside about the place, but...More

I didn't book a tour so I'm not sure. They have audio guides though. There is free parking within walking distance. I was there during Octoberfest so we had to walk pretty far because parking was hard to come by. But that... More
