Tips

  • Ein 🐟 namens Wander

    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 Napoleonstein commemorates the "great work" of the enterprising French general. In Waterloo it was over.

    A hike to the Napoleon Stone is highly recommended, there are several different hiking trails to the Napoleon Stone, once you get to the top you have a wonderful all-round view. Whatever the season, it's always beautiful.

    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.

    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.

    on a clear day you can look much further south than just to the light castle. Namely up to the ridge south of Pösneck.... ;-)
