Napoleonic war memorial in Loiben

Napoleonic war memorial in Loiben, Austria

Riding the Wachau Railway I always wondered about the meaning of this big memorial just next to the tracks. After a visit at the Domäne Wachau I had the chance to learn more about it: It is a memorial about an engagement between French, Austrian and Russian troops during the Napoleonic Wars on Nov 11th, 1805.
