WalkingFor a leisurely stroll or a tough hike, Waterloo and Beyond has a store of walks to enjoy.

Cross-country walks through our beautiful region will take you through mounds and castles, to go daffodil picking, or to the woods as well as many other sites. In all, more than 450 km of waymarked paths and trails are there for your pleasure.

Walloon Brabant towns also invite out you for a stroll! Combine a tourist visit with a breath of fresh air. Discover the town of Nivelles and its magnificent St Gertrude Collegiate Church. The brochure "In the footsteps of Jean de Nivelles" will serve as your guide. Or click here to download a description of Louvain-la-Neuve, its artistic treasures and architectural curiosities.

Tours focusing on specific themes corresponding to your special interests can be downloaded directly from our site, in our "Brochures" column.

The Promenade du Lion, for example, will have you re-live each stage of the Battle of Waterloo, via the Hougoumont Farrm, the Lion's Mound and Napoleon's last headquarters, among others. Please consult the Maison du Tourisme of Waterloo.

Something more exotic? Geocoaching takes you on a modern day treasure hunt, using a GPS as your guide. This is an amusing way to explore our beautiful countryside and villages with family or friends. Further information on the site geocaching.
