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 14, 1806, the battle of Jena took place on this plateau between Cospeda, Krippendorf and Vierzehnheiligen, at which Napoleon I, emperor of the French, fought 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 residents at the time.
