Located in the middle of Belgium, the City of Waterloo is just 20 miles from Brussels, the nation’s capital. Known for the Battle of Waterloo where Napoleon was defeated in 1815, the city is just on the edge of the Sonian Forest and has a population of about 30,000 people. As early as 1102, Waterloo was a place where merchants and travelers found protection and rest from the bandits in the area.
Waterloo is divided into six sections, which include Mont-Saint-Jean, Joli-Bois, Centre, Chenois, Faubourg Est, and Faubourg Ouest. Many of the restaurants and museums are in the Faubourg sections of Waterloo, while the natural spaces like parks are mainly located in Mont-Saint-Jean. You can also find shopping of every type all over, including malls, boutiques, and small shops.
Among the shopping, eating, and museums, you can find a casino where you can try your luck, several dozen parks, and of course, many memorials to the Battle of Waterloo. You can enjoy a hike through the Sonian Forest, Hallerbos Forest, or the Ru Milhoux Reserve and then cool off in the Renipont-Plage swimming pond. They have a large beach with beach huts, a slide, and playground equipment as well as a terrace and restaurant.

Top Things to Do
One of the must-see places in Waterloo is Napoleon’s Last Headquarters on Chaussee de Bruxelles. This is the small farmhouse where Napoleon spent his last night before the Battle of Waterloo. See some of the items he left behind, such as maps, letters, and coins. Spend time visiting some of the many castles in Waterloo, as well.
Since the city is known for Napoleon and the Battle of Waterloo, you should not be surprised that there are quite a few memorials and museums in town. From the 1815 Waterloo Memorial to the Lion’s Mound Memorial, discover all sorts of interesting history here.
Memorial Waterloo 1815: Also known as the 1815 Waterloo Memorial, this is a four-part memorial. Complete with a museum, panorama, the Lion’s Mound, and Hougoumont Farm, all are located on Route du Lion. Browse the uniforms, maps, and weapons as well as films on the history of the battle. The panorama is a giant historical painting that is 361 feet long and 40 feet high. The Lion’s Mound is a hill with a lion statue that commemorates the place where William II was injured in 1815. Walk up 226 steps to get to the top – the view is worth it. The Hougoumont Farm is where the Duke of Wellington stood his ground with his defensive line in 1815.
Mont-Saint-Jean Farm: Another historic farmhouse, this one on Chaussee de Charleroi, was a field hospital during the war from 1705 until 1815. In June of 1815, the Royal Army Medical Corps treated more than 6,000 soldiers at this small farm. It was known as “the English Hospital,” although the hospital treated others as well. The hospital books show that almost 63,000 casualties were recorded here between June 15th and 18th in 1815.
Fine Arts Museum: This art gallery has over 20,000 works of art and sculptures. With art dating back to the 15th century, you'll see prints, drawings, sculptures, and paintings from the Southern Netherlands as well as Belgium. The museum also has a gift shop and book shop.
The good thing about shopping abroad is that you can get some fantastic deals on all kinds of products. In Waterloo, shop at any of the small boutiques or pop up shops. Visit the vast shopping malls, or just go to a department store. Flea markets and food markets are also busy during the warmer months from May through September.
Woluwe Shopping Center: Located on Rue Saint-Lambert off R22 and N226, you can find one of the largest shopping centers in Waterloo. More than 100 different shops and kiosks carry name brands like Levi’s and H & M. Small local shops sell one of a kind handmade items. After you work up an appetite, head to one of the 28 eateries where you can get sushi, burgers, ice cream, and more.
Markets: Several dozen flea markets and food markets are in Waterloo to check out, but many are only open on weekends. The Waterloo Flea Market, also known as Broc’ Antik Market Belgium, is located behind the Carrefour Supermarket with 300 indoor merchants and over 100 outside. They sell everything from antiques to handcrafted jewelry and clothing.
Souvenir Shops: Why not go to a souvenir shop to get your souvenirs? In many cities, you can get the best deals here. The Brussels Corner has high-quality items. They are on Rue du Marche aux and have a variety of gifts from baby clothes to coffee cups. For the more standard items like shot glasses, magnets, and bottle openers at great prices, go to the Atomium Shop on Rue au Beurre near Brussels.
Some of the most common (but uncommonly delicious) Belgian foods are gray shrimp, mussels, beef stew, steak, potatoes, and eel. Of course, they also love waffles, chocolate, and speculoos, which are spiced cinnamon biscuits.
Burgers: You can get a burger just about anywhere in town. Some of the fancier establishments include Be Burger Waterloo on Chaussee de Bruxelles, La Pomme on Chaussee de Tervuren, and Wood Wayne on Chaussee de Nivelles. Marcel is a more reasonable and casual place, which is also on Chaussee de Bruxelles.
Seafood: Looking for fancy seafood? Try Drève de Lorraine or L'Opéra on Chaussee de Tervuren. You can also check out Au Cor de Chasse on Avenue des Casernes or Artisauce on Chaussee de Waterloo. Another fantastic and casual seafood place is Bon Bon on Avenue de Tervuren.
French: Of course, French food is a popular choice no matter what city you are in, but Belgium has a large French population. Try some filet mignon or pasta at Le Pot’entiel on Rue de la Station. Max & Moi is another fantastic French place serving delights like pigeon filets, lamb chops, and grilled fish. Find this charming café on Grand Place Baudouin Premier. Don’t forget to top it off with some pastries at M-Joy Cupcakes on Rue Francois Libert.
