If you want to see all of Leipzig, this is a great viewpoint. Moreover, this is a great educational visit of a monument to one of the pivotal battles in the Napoleonic era in Europe. Being a military history fan, this was a must-see in Sachsen!

Really nice place, a huge monument with a lot of history behind. It worths to go up the building and have a panoramic sight from Leipzig.

We definitely recommend visiting this in conjunction with the Panometer as both give an amazing insight into the turning point in Napoleon's campaign's in Europe. The building is a stunning stone fortress, built like a cathedral inside, with so much detail in the statues and carvings and ornaments outside, and a great view over the city from the viewing platform...

Newly renovated, the Völkerschlachtdenkmal offers a nice view. Really interesting exhibition. The park and the lake are nice to just sit and relax.

Nice little museum but go inside the memorial (it is awesome) and take the elevator to the top. (or walk the 500 stairs!) The view of Leipzig is fantastic!

If you are in the city you should visit it. Probably it's not the most beautiful but the history behind it is quite important. If the weather is nice you would be able to go to the top of it! And you will enjoy a 360 degrees view, which is really nice and worthy. I hope you enjoy it!

This building, inside as well as outside with its museum and shop, is REAllY very impressive! One expects this kind of building in Laos or Cambodia, kind of, so finding this not very far from the centre of Leipzig, is quite incredible. It can be seen from wide around even from the autoroute. It is very interesting to also read... More

An amazing momument that was so picturesque in the Winter and snow! You can walk to the top inside and look down onto the floor below. We didnt walk up inside as it was for a fee, but it would have given a good view of Leipzig.

If you stay in Leipzig this monument is a must. I reccomend to take the offered audio-guide and listen to the information. You should also take the time to visit the attached museum with the audio-guide. This provides you a detailed insight of the time around 1813, what followed afterwards, etc. As mentioned, it provides a better understanding of European... More
