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.
