I am a fun of history and large scale monuments, so being for half a day in Leibzig would mean that I would definitely go and visit the place. I was not disappointed. The view from the top is a amazing. There some elevators to reach some levels but if someone wants to go all the way up must be... More

The architecture is a bit of a mish-mash and I would not call it beautiful. But the imposing monument is worth a visit for the scale and of course the views from the top.

Catch the No 15 tram from outside the Hauptbahnof (Going in the left hand direction when you exit the station). Get off at the stpp of the same name and you'll see it straight away. The lake in front of it is sadly neglected but the building itself is hugely impressive

The Völkerschlachtdenkmal is a great Monument for the battle of the nations. It's a really impressive building it's absolutely worth climbing the 366 stairs up to the viewingplatform. If the weather conditions are good you will habe a great view over leipzig and if you're lucky you can even see the harz mountains. But if you suffer under claustrophobia you... More

A beautiful sight in a now very modern city... worth a visit to see the beautiful and quiet pond with the monument at the end. Quite a stunning setting.....

I've grown up about an hour from Leipzig and had visited the monument before when I was a kid, but always wanted to go back. A few months ago I was watching the making off of Peter Jacksons 'The Hobbit' movie in my flat in London and couldn't believe it when they showed the Monument for the battle of the... More

A monument to a critical battle in world history, yet one I frankly didn't know much about. This attraction provides amazing views from its top viewing platform. Architecture, preservation efforts and history are a 'Must See' if you are in Leipzig for any length of time. Recommend a pair good walking shoes to ascend the 700+ steps to the top... More
