Waterloo Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 137 photos

Waterloo, is a small city in the Belgian province of Walloon-Brabant (Brabant-Wallon). The city owes its fame to the battle which took place on the 18th of June 1815. The Battle of Waterloo was fought between the French, under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte, and the Allied armies commanded by the Duke of Wellington from Britain and General Bl├╝cher from Prussia.
A lot of different places here remind of the horrible battle that happened. The most famous one is possibly "The Lion Hill" (la Butte du Lion) which commemorates the bravery of the Prince of Orange, who was wounded here.
