  • This is history. Visited over ten years ago. It looked almost exactly the same as paintings/drawings of the battle. So little had changed (e.g. window frames at the main gate). Quite a sobering experience that so many fought and died here.
  • A place to be seen trying to imagine the horrors of those days. Not to be missed when you are in brussels
  • Because 18 June 1815 201 years ago was fought the decisive battle of Napoleon Bonaparte, Waterloo. Here in this step you could admire Napoleon's army and the anglo-Prussian army (led by the Duke of Wellington and General Blücher) fight against the French. Most of the walls of the anglo-Prussian army have been built by the Hougoumont. And this in my opinion is a very important cultural heritage.
