It is an easy walk to view the monument and view the scenery. The cafe and the monument allow for a respite break along the drive.

This is well worth seeing given its history and the stunning backdrop. I would say it's not worth paying more to go up to the top. You don't see much from up top that you couldn't see on the ground. There is a "guide" who...More

The monument itself is hard to see the details on it because it's so high but the ambiance and location of the monument is awesome. Walking toward it you can see the lake and mountains. And it was about 4 pm so the lake was...More

Time of visit is not problem, because monument is accessible all time without any closed gates or fee. I recommended you climbing on small hill on opposite side of monument. From there is very nice view to monument and lake... More

As far as I know you can take dogs down to the lake and the monument itself, although not inside because of the very narrow staircase. As long as they are on a leash and under control (and obviously clean up after them if... More
