Very impressive building. We didn't visit the inside, but it's allready impressive to watch the outside and walk around it. Don't forgot to bring a visit to the beautiful (and big) cemetary next to it.

The enormity of this memorial stands out. Made of concrete, it's size and grandeur both inside and out are impressive. The climb to the top allows you to feel how large this is, and gives excellent panoramic views. The statues inside (representing faith, bravery, fertility...More

Super impressive highlight and a must go if you visit Leipzig! You can reach the top either via elevator or by taking the stairs. I took the stairs which made me a little breathless but it is definitely worth doing as they are impressive, too!...More

This is slightly out of the centre of Leipzig but easily reached by taking trams 15 or 2. It is very impressive at 91 metres high. Unfortunately it was still under restoration and the central pond was dry, which will continue until 2019, but you...More

This must be the biggest monument anywhere. It commemorates the Battle of the nations in 1812 when the combined force of Germans, Russians and Swedes beat Napoleons French Army. In the UK this is hardly mentioned, but it must have helped when it came to...More

Site was unfortunately under construction when I visited. Can imagine the surrounding to be much nicer once finished. The monument itself is an impressive construction towering over the park with huge slabs of concrete. Takes some climbing stairs and narrow pathways to reach the top...More

The Battle of the Nations in 1813 was the defeat of Napoleon which led to his first exile to Elba. Huge numbers of soldiers died, from all sides. This monument was built about 100 years later and is a massive construction. I found the sculptures...More

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

Wonderful experience of two choirs inside. With wonderful light at the outside and special light installation inside it was really touching more then one sense.

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
