View is amazing, it is worth it going up walking, it is not that hard, though it takes about 20 minutes or less. There is also the option to go by elevator to almost the top. The view is great and the sunset from their...More

Impressive history and monument. It is huge and interesting on the inside with views of city and area. This may make some eyes roll, but it looks like the pedistal without a statue on it.

Certainly a wow factor. The immense scale of the place is breathtaking - as are the 500 steps to the top although you can appreciate the spectacle of the monument without going right to the top. Museum very interesting. There are vending machines but no...More

At 91m high the "Völkerschlachtdenkmal" is one of the biggest in Europe and a must-see in Leipzig. It's a very unique piece of art reflective of the Zeitgeist at the time of its construction: giant sculptures glorifying war, nationalism and sacrifice in the name of...More

Just outside of Leipzig, it's an easy tram (#15) ride. You know which stop to get off, because it's massive. In theory, there is a lift (actually two lifts) that can get you most of the way up. But, the first lift was broken, and...More

The statues on the doors and the ones inside are really colosal. The last part of the staircase Is really narrow, nothing for the claustrophobic person.

This was the unexpected highlight of our trip to Leipzig. It’s easily accessible by tram and enormous so you can’t miss it when you disembark! Do hire the audio guide but don’t listen when he tells you to walk to the top. We did and...More

This monument is wonderful. If you are visiting Leipzig, you cannot miss it. It is out of the town centre but you can reach it with the tram. From the top it id possible to enjoy a wonderful view of the whole city.

We went here on by chance while riding trams in Leipzig. If you are into European history you will enjoy this. Fascinating. If you like views of city's you will also like this but perhaps not the 500 steps. There is a list some of...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

You could easily use nowadays the City Tunnel or the Tram Nr. 15.
