At the junction of the Pleisse and Weisse Elster rivers, in the Saxon lowland, sits the city of Leipzig with a population of over 500,000. When spending a weekend, Leipzig visitors soon discover that Leipzig is very well known for its trade fair and university. The imposing Battle of the Nations Monument built in 1898-1913 has an observation platform 91 meters high and built to commemorate the Battle of the Nations' one hundredth anniversary. Laid out in 1556, the Naschmarkt is a quiet little square behind the Old Town Hall used for social events. No visit to Leipzig would be complete without seeing the University’s famed botanical garden, which started as a medicinal plant garden in 1877 but almost destroyed during World War II. Today it features well over nine thousand plants.
