Here you can watch, listen, and read all about preparations for the 200 Year Anniversary of the Battle of Nations which will take place in Leipzig 2013.
Every October a whole village travels back in time to relive, "Liebertwolkwitz-the way it really was," in the areas surrounding Leipzig during the Battle of Nations.
You're invited to enjoy historical reenactments and hear some of the local history from right where it happened on the historical Market square and in the connecting courtyards.
"Meet and interact" with villagers who were living in Liebertwolkwitz in 1813, from preacher to teacher, tradesman to restaurant proprietor to farmer, and even the Mayor and Judge.
Soldiers of the other nations will also be quartered in Liebertwolkwitz, sleeping on hay sacks in barns and in attics just the way they were in 1813.
Lively hustle and bustle will surround you in the courtyards, in the old sheds and dark cellars. Farmers and tradesmen hard at work, a handcart rumbles over the village road, the clink of the blacksmith's hammer can be heard from all around...
Enjoy a hearty meal with a freshly tapped beer or a delicious wine.
Little ones will enjoy listening to fairytales in the cozy grain loft, making their own stick pony, playing historical games, do pottery or weaving, petting the animals or even just tumbling around in the straw. Children will love traveling back in time to enjoy an entertaining and educational journey to the year 1813.
You're invited to visit Liebertwolkwitz in October of this year as well. Just close your eyes as we travel back in time to 1813…
