Napoleon in Germany Tour Overview

During eight days we will follow the events of 1806 and 1813 in a mostly chronological order, allowing us to appreciate the time, distance and geographical challenges that had to be overcome by armies fighting mainly in Saxony.

Like Napoleon and his men, you will climb the Langrafenberg at Jena, walk the ground between the villages around Gross Gorschen, appreciate the obscured lines of sight which affected the outcome of Bautzen, see where Vandamme was captured, where Moreau was mortally wounded, ascend the massive Leipzig monument and ferry across the Elbe at Wartenberg. By the end of the tour you will have gained a greater understanding of the complex 1813 campaign and in particular the impact of the successful application of the Allies’ Trachtenberg Plan.
