Visit Waterloo to learn about its famous namesake battle with this trip from Brussels. You'll visit Napoleon’s headquarters and then head to the Waterloo Memorial Site, complete with a huge panorama depicting different stages of the battle. You'll then head to Saint John's Farm, the former site of an allied hospital that has since been turned into a microbrewery, where you'll get to learn about brewing and sample some local beer before returning to Brussels.

What to expect?

  • After meeting in Brussels, on the 20-kilometer drive to the battlefield your guide will give you a full account of the prelude to the war, and you will learn how the battle developed. Visit Napoleon’s headquarters and drive past the historical farms that were strongholds of the Duke of Wellington’s army.

  • Take ample time to visit the Waterloo Memorial Site where you can dive into a unique multi-sensory experience of the battle itself. You will marvel at the Panorama, an immense fresco measuring 110 meters in circumference, that narrates the crucial phases of the battle. The Lion's Mound boasts unique views over the battlefield after a memorable ascent.

  • Your visit ends on a lighter note. During the battle, Saint John’s Farm housed the allied hospital where 7000 wounded soldiers were treated.
