Waterloo Private Tour - with Transfer Excursions à Bruxelles
Waterloo Private Tour - with Transfer: We leave Brussels directly in the direction of the Center of Waterloo, and pass the Wellington museum.
During our driving tour on the battlefield itself we start with the eastern corner of the battlefield with the “Ferme de la PAPELOTTE” and the famous sunken road that was so heavy in casualties for the French Cavalry. Back to the center of the battlefield we pass the Gordon monument, the “LA HAIE SAINTE” Farm where such a heavy fighting took place and only taken by Napoleon in the very late afternoon. At the “BELLE ALLIANCE” farm we have an outlook from the same observation point that Napoleon used. Then, in the village of Plancenoit, we reach the monument for the Prussians: a turning point in the battle, as we can see the eastern fields from where the Prussians were coming, despite being beaten 2 days earlier in Ligny. This arrival at the “good place and the good time” and the fantastic defense of Hougoumont have been crucial in the result of the battle. Then we drive to the very interesting new visitor center, putting the Battle in a more general European perspective and you can assist to a fabulous presentation of the Battle in 3G. Of course you can climb the Lion Hill and visit the Panorama painting.
But the highlight is without any doubt the presentation at the grange of HOUGOUMONT farm, on the spot where 200 years ago the battle in the battle took place. By using new technologies you will get a very impressive end of your visit.
