Völkerschlachtdenkmal

Gareth visits the Monument to the Battle of the Nations in Leipzig. Using a combination of a Sony Alpha 6500 and a DJI Phantom 4 Pro, Gareth captured footage of this spectacular building, built to commemorate the bloodiest battle in Europe prior to the 20th Century. The scale of the construction is nothing short of incredible, given that it was completed for the 100th anniversary of the Battle, in 1913. The 'Guardians of the Dead', sculpted from granite, stand over 30 feet tall and loom majestic and sombre, over the landscape outside. On the second story inside, the Ruhmeshalle (Hall of Fame) features four statues, representing the four legendary historic qualities ascribed to the German people: bravery, faith, sacrifice, and fertility.
