    The Lake of Tears in Leipzig is an artificially created, 162 x 79 meter large water basin in front of the Leipzig Völkerschlachtdenkmal, probably the most famous sight in Leipzig. The lake symbolizes the tears of the peoples who mourned the victims of the Battle of Leipzig in October 1813. More than 120,000 soldiers were killed in the battle that broke Napoleon's tyranny over Europe.

    The large 180m long and 80m wide water basin at the foot of the Völkerschlachtdenkals Leipzig symbolizes the tears that were shed during the great battle - the "lake of tears". If you stand directly in front of the Lake of Tears, the Völkerschlachtdenkmal Leipzig is reflected in it.Source:

    Right in front of the monument, between the bistro and the parking lot.

    When the sun is shining and the lake is calm, you can make great mirror images of the monument.
