About 15 kilometers south of Brussel Waterloo can be found. This is the place where the army of Napoleon suffered defeat in 1815. Since then Waterloo has been an attraction worth visiting in Belgium, and several thousand tourists come here every year to visit this historical location.
At the spot where the battle took place you can today visit the visitors center for further and more detailed information about the battle. Except from this Waterloo does not have to much to show, therefore this is an excursion from Brussels recommended for those with a quite large interest in history.
The visitors center is open throughout the entire year.
