Waterloo Travel guide
Waterloo : Michelin's recommendations
From the 15C to the middle of the 17C a hamlet grew up on the road from Genappe to Brussels. A humble overnight halt, Waterloo only appeared on maps towards the end of the 17C. The settlement’s widespread fame is due to the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815, which marked the victory of the British, Dutch and Prussian allies over the armies of Napoleon, thereby finally ending his reign. Every five years a re-enactment takes place involving thousands of participants.
