Visit Waterloo Belgium
and Explore The History
Waterloo Belgium is just a short short bus, train or car trip south of Brussels. If you want to see where Napolean 'met his Waterloo', then this is the place. The famous village of Waterloo lent its name to the battle that decided the course of European history nearly 200 years ago in 1815.
But there's more to do in Waterloo than see the battlefield.
Below you'll find links to Waterloo hotels, our favorite Waterloo restaurants, frite shops and ice cream stands as well as the Wellington Museum, a 1000-year-old 'must-see' Abbey, and of course, all the attractions surrounding the battlefield.
