I've traveled there once when I lived in Muenchen . it is such a beautiful place . . so I googled it . . and I found it . . http://www.leipzig-picture.com/memorials/stmichael_battle_of_nations St. Michael at the Battle of Nations Memorial . . http://www.leipzig.de/int/en/tourist/stadtspaz/fotorund/02425.shtml begin quote . . The Monument to the Battle of the Nations, which is situated to the south of the city centre in Probstheida, is one of the most famous historical monuments. It was inaugurated on 18th October 1913, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Nations near Leipzig. As a memorial for peace it reminds of the battle fought against the Napoleon troops by the allied armies and covers an area of 80,000 m2, including its outside grounds. The viewing platform at a height of more than 90 m provides a superb view over Leipzig's city centre and the surroundings. . end quote . . Now I understand what I am viewing . Beautiful work Marc . . you are featured in :: Dimensions ::
