Battle of Nations near Leipzig

From October 16th to October 19th 1813 the Battle of Nations was fought around Leipzig. In this battle, the wars of liberation against Napoleon’s troops reached their tragic peak. By winning this decisive victory over the French troops and their allies, the allied troops of Russia, Prussia, Austria and Sweden were able to break Napoleon’s dominance in Europe. The Battle of Nations went down in history as the biggest battle in the century with about 600,000 soldiers taking part and over 110,000 of them getting killed.


Monument of the Battle of Nations

The Monument of the Battle of Nations was built 100 years after the Battle of Nations took place near Leipzig. It took almost 15 years to build the monument in the middle of the former battlefield. With about 300,000 tons of weight and 91 meters of hight, it is one of Europe’s biggest monuments offering a great view over Leipzig, to those who climb the 364 stairs. A visitor’s centre and a museum can be visited on the 80,000sqm area around the monument. The Monument of the Battle of Nations serves not only as a memorial for German history, it is also the most famous work of Bruno Schmitz, the architect who also built the Kyffhäuser monument or the Kaiser Wilhelm monument.
