We got the tram to Meusdorf and took a short walk to Sud Friedhof to visit the monument. It is a very reasonable entrance fee which takes you right inside. There are lifts to the different levels which not give you great views of the...More

Impressive history and monument. It is huge and interesting on the inside with views of city and area. This may make some eyes roll, but it looks like the pedistal without a statue on it.

Certainly a wow factor. The immense scale of the place is breathtaking - as are the 500 steps to the top although you can appreciate the spectacle of the monument without going right to the top. Museum very interesting. There are vending machines but no...More
