The Museum of the City of Leipzig- The Monument to the Battle of the Nations

Europe's largest monument construction, in remembrance of those killed during the Battle of the Nations, inaugurated in 1913.

Also known as the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, the huge temple to death and freedom in Europe rises 91 metres into the sky on a site near where Napoleon’s command post stood during the Battle of Leipzig in 1813. 364 steps lead to a viewing platform which gives phenomenal views of Leipzig and the surrounding area.

The impressive monument complex with the integrated Forum 1813 museum covers four hectares and gives spectacular insights into the events of the Battle of Leipzig and its aftermath.
