Volkerschlachtdenkmal, Leipzig

4.0
The 500-step, 91 m (299 ft) tall Volkerschlachtdenkmal commemorates the 1813 Battle of Leipzig. You can take breaks at various spots on the way up to the viewing platform. Alternatively, you can take the elevator all or some of the way. You'll be reminded of this bloody battle's fatalities at the crypt, which is adorned by eight large statues of fallen warriors. Continue upward to the hall of fame. The four statues here represent historic qualities ascribed to the German people: bravery, faith, sacrifice, and fertility. Once you reach the viewing platform, you will be rewarded with spectacular views across the city.

  • What can I say. A must if you're in Leipzig. An imposing building. The entrance fee for adults is 8,00 euro

  • We saw this as part of a hop on hop off ride and went back the next day to spend more time there. The scale of it is incredible, and the visitor centre and views from the top are both superb  more »
  • We have made the Memorial a walk from the city centre, is pretty but you can see a bit more of the city. You can also easily reach it with the ÖVPN. Inside, we took the stairs, there is also a lift. This is not up to top, you must run the rest. There's a traffic light system, because the course is very small. Once at the top the climb was worth definitely. I personally find very stuffy only the aisle and then also dizzy. At the bottom, a film about German history be shown - absolutely!

  • Located opposite the car park and main entrance to the enormous nearby "Völkerschlachtdenkmal" monument-memorial to the (Napoleonic era) Battle of Leipzig / "The Nations" this is a convenient - but not terribly congenial - place for a quick coffee / beer and cake with which to take a break and rest after the extensive walking involved with a visit to the monument. It seems popular with groups of older people and family gatherings : but this tends to render the service slow and erattically attentive (in good German tradition) Would I patronise again ? No.
  • Love it 😍😍😍
  • Everything perfectly! Was very happy and satisfied! The Park restaurant is located in close proximity to the monument of the battle of Nations. There is ample parking space in front of the restaurant. The staff is friendly and Nice. In the warmer months, you can use the open spaces. To recommend!

  • Good price / performance ratio. Super food. Sometimes very full due to the tourists who visit the monument of the battle of Nations. Rustic tables and chairs, beautiful view (of one side in the Park, and on the other side of the battle of Nations Monument). A little tip; shortly before the peak times or make a reservation. In the summer you can sit outside.

  • Super delicious food, friendly staff, top price - performance ratio. Too bad it soon closes. Have spent there some evening. The staff all the best for the future.
