We got the tram to this huge memorial. Its quiet spectacular. There are some steps to get in and if you want to go to the top some more, but there is a lift for the less able.

If you visit Leipzig, that's a place were you have to go! Great view over Leipzig. You have an elevator to the middle of the monument. But nothing for people with claustrophobia!

This is an amazing monument to visit and will test your stamina and claustrophobia if you decide to climb all the way to the top. It is well worth it to get the 360 degree view around Leipzig.

The immense size of this monument is striking. The monument is in honor of the first time Napoleon was defeated in battle, and this monument really portrays how much the defeat meant to the people. This was the highlight of our family's day in Leipzig....More

A monument of monumental proportions. Well worth the quick S bahn ride from the city center. Climb the 500 steps to reach an incredible view from the platform at the top. The monument itself has a rich and fascinating history, it's well worth reading about...More

It's difficult to adequately describe this outstanding historical monument (actually, it's a building), which is huge and such a surprise inside! The carvings inside and the views are superb. It's worth going to Leipzig just to see this monument that was built more than 100...More

The lady in the box office had attitude. She denied speaking English (in a tourist attraction?), but then went on to ask for payment and give change in perfect English. The man in the lobby told us the elevator "was kaput", but we found it...More

Primarily a monument associated with napoleonic conflict but what is more evident is the extensive scarring from the last stand of a ss unit here in 1945. Bit of Web research and some photos of the aftermath of the action in 45 make the visit...More
