This monument to the War of the Nations (Napolean's time) was indeed a BIG surprise! Worth seeing just to go inside and experience the HUGE-ness of the statues and grasp the intention of the monument. They are working on the long fountain in front but...More

This could be easily missed if you never venture outside the city center, but it is definitely worth visiting. It's a fairly short (15 minutes or so) ride on the 15 tram from the center. There is an entrance fee, but nothing huge. The exterior...More

Go there before the sun set enjoy the view and tge reflection of the building on the lake beside the guge building. Bring something to eat since no place around to buy food. Sometimes there is a guy selling Curry Wurst but not always. ENJOY

European largest monument is impressive in size and massive inside. There are several levels and a lot of stairs to climb to get to the top but the view was worth it. Too bad the reflecting pond was under construction.

We did a round Leipzic tour on an open top Bus and this was one of the last stops before returning to the Haupbanhof. Well worth a look, there is some repair work going on in the surrounding area but the monument is unaffected

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
