Waterloo & beyond

When one says Waterloo what automatically springs to mind is the battlefields in Southern Belgium where the French army of Napoleon Bonaparte was defeated by a coalition of several armies led by the Duke of Wellington in June 1815.  Two centuries later, in June 2015, 5000 thousands re-enactors will have you go back in time to witness one of the biggest battles in world history: The Battle of Waterloo.

Much more than just an area of battlefields, Waterloo and its surroundings are a region full of must-sees, activities, golf courses, walking, cycling, gastronomy.

Discover the region’s tourism must-sees, the events marking Waterloo 2015, the museums, the castles, parks and gardens, to name but a few.

Enjoy the local specialities, play some sport or hit the shops.

Relax in a luxury or family-run hotel, a bed and breakfast or guest house, or why not try a farm-stay or a downtown hotel.
