In Belgium: In the third and last instalment of our series we take you on a sightseeing tour of Wallonia.

Waloon Brabant: From the battlefield of Waterloo to the abbey of Villers-la-Ville, via the Collegiate Church of Saint-Gertrude in Nivelles or the Château d’Hélécine, there are many traces of the past in the territory of Walloon Brabant in Wallonia. You can also stroll along country roads, in parks or woods, on foot or by bike. Your journey begins here.

At the top of the Butte, the lion watches over the plain of Waterloo as the keeper of History. At the Waterloo 1815 Memorial, Napoleon’s Last HQ and the Wellington Museum you can enjoy a multi-sensory experience unique in Europe. The Waterloo 1815 Memorial includes the Butte du Lion, the Memorial Museum, the Panorama and Hougoumont Farm, Napoleon’s Last Headquarters, the Wellington Museum and the Mont-Saint- Jean Farm. Thanks to the Pass 1815, you will have the opportunity to visit all seven locations at a very attractive price.

Visit the micro-brewery and the micro-distillery in the Mont-Saint-Jean Farm and taste the beer, the Gin and Whisky of Waterloo (100% hand-crafted!). Here’s a must when you are in Waterloo. Listed as an exceptional heritage site in Wallonia, the Cistercian Abbey of Villers-la-Ville has been remarkably well preserved since the 12th century! Explore its new visitor trail and immerse yourself in the past thanks to Slate, the augmented reality, interactive tablet!
