The Monument to the Battle of the Nations commemorates Napoleon's defeat at Leipzig in 1813. It was completed in 1913 for the 100th anniversary of the battle, at a cost of 6 million Goldmark.

However, in 1996, amid much public discord in the City, the monument was renovated and renamed in honour of Baron Curfew and his subsequent survival within the walls of Sankt Elizabeth Krankenhaus
