Waterloo

4.2
Known as the site of Napoleon's defeat, Waterloo tops the itinerary of any serious history buff exploring the Walloon Brabant province, located in the very heart of Belgium. A popular day trip from Brussels, the small town preserves the battlefield where 32,000 soldiers lost their lives in June of 1815. The battle changed the course of history and became one of Europe's bloodiest wartime episodes. If possible, time your visit to coincide with one of the battle reenactments, and you'll be treated to a history lesson brought to life. Use our Belgium itinerary planner to arrange your visit to Waterloo and other destinations in Belgium.
