I'm glad to have visited this monument in Leipzig - it is very impressive for sure. Take the tram 8 or 15 (I think) from Augustusplatz as it is a bit further away from the city. If you go there before 5:30 pm or so,...More

We only had time to see this monument from outside so can't comment on the services inside but just the look of it is impressive and certainly worth the small detours from city center.

Visiting the Voelkerschlachtdenkmal makes you feel like being part of the movie "The lord of the rings". The statues are imense and at the top of the monument you have a great view of the ciy of Leipzig and its sourroundings. A must do.

A reasonable entry fee enabled us to see inside this fantastic memorial building. There is a lift part way up but otherwise I believe there is something like 700 steps to climb to the very top for a fantastic view of the city and surrounding...More

You should give it a go as it reminds us to be careful with hate and war ! It will not be to everyone's like, the style it has. But still impressive and the view is great from the top!

We had heard a lot of this as we visited other locations in Leipzig but nothing prepares you for its sheer size and impact. When you approach it looks big but only when you get close do you realise just how impressive it is. The...More

I did not really appreciate how big this monument was until I was standing at the entrance. It is massive, which is something you get to appreciate even more after climbing all of those steps and get to see the panoramic view of Leipzig and...More

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
