Long Description:
Die Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig vom 16. bis 19. Oktober 1813 (visit link) war die Entscheidungsschlacht der Befreiungskriege. Napoleon musste sich am Ende mit seinen übrig gebliebenen Verbündeten zurückziehen.

Rund um das großflächige Schlachtfeld gab es mehrere Feld-Lazarette. Ein Museum in Seifertshain erinnert heute an die Arbeit der Ärzte und Chirurgen in diesem Krieg.

Das Schloss Güldengossa diente als ein solches Lazarette während der Kampfhandlungen im Süden von Leipzig. Direkt nördlich von Güldengossa tobte die direkte Ausseinandersetzung zwischen Napoleon und der böhmischen Armee unter Karl Philipp zu Schwarzenberg.
