Waterloo is a historic town in the Walloon province of Walloon Brabant in Belgium (close to Brussels).

Get in

Hourly trains run from Brussels and (on weekdays) Leuven to Nivelles, stopping at Waterloo and Eigenbrakel/Braine-l'Alleud. From either of these stations it is a 3-kilometre walk to the site. The most convenient way to get to Waterloo from Brussels is the hourly bus to Charleroi operated by TEC. It starts at Brussel-Zuid/Midi station and, after about half an hour, has a stop that is just 300 metres away from the Lion's Mound.

Get around


  • Waterloo Battlefield, Lion's Mound [1] - Discover the Waterloo Battlefield where Napolean lost his final battle. See the battlefield exactly like it was June the 18th of 1815 when Wellington faced Napoleon for an ultimate battle that changed Europe's face forever. The Lion's Mound is an artificial hill of 43 metres high with a statue of a lion on top, roaring southwards in the direction of France. It can be climbed by stairs and offers a splendid view over the whole battlefield.
