Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • Today, our visit not of success was crowned. 5 times visible staff and it has ignored us. When we went they had noticed us. It's a pity also for our child, which was disappointed. Other visits before were different and better. The restaurant at our time was not full. Maybe was it a little warm and Sunday.

  • Food is good, the service is friendly and fast. The restaurant is quite noisy due to the architecture, if a few guests are present. I'd like to go again.

  • The service is very friendly. The menu was ever better. There also once was a steak day - all over. Too bad, so I'll avoid the restaurant.

  • Good location, in the vicinity of the battle of Nations monument, on the edge of a Parkes.Genug parking in immediate Nähe.Im restaurant itself is all pretty dark kept, very rustic. In good weather you can sit comfortably outside. Staff often choppy, but nice. Range of food and drink good price io.

  • The food taste was alright but not perfect, never mind Yes but right now, but unfortunately a part of my order was only lukewarm. The drinks are stretched ugly erweise with water. The staff is frantic and inexpert that feel better. Tables will be cleared only when the next guest is already waiting. Everything goes in right but much better here, a more reasonable price saves the overall picture.
