    From the Napoleon Stone you can enjoy a fantastic view of Jena and the Saale Valley. In good weather to the Leuchtenburg. In autumn, the wind lump is a popular area for flying kites.

    The plateau of the Saale-Ilm-Platte can be seen from here over great distances and of course the Zeiss and university town of Jena in the Saale Valley.
    On October 14th, 1806 the Battle of Jena took place on this plateau between Cospeda, Krippendorf and Vierzehnheiligen, during which Napoleon I, Emperor of the French, defeated the Prussians and their allies (part of the double battle of Jena and Auerstedt). Daily balance: 10,000 dead and injured among the Prussians and Saxons, 7,500 dead and wounded among the French. More wounded were brought to the city of Jena than Jena had at that time.

    The Napoleon Stone is a memorial to the Battle of Jena and Auerstedt and is located on the Windknollen northwest of Jena.
    Due to its location on this hill close to the city, the Napoleon Stone is a popular destination for the Jena population.

    In 1806, on the eve of the Battle of Jena and Auerstedt, the French Emperor planned his attack on the Prussian army in this place. The 360 degree view was a military advantage for viewing large stretches of terrain.
