The Lion's Mound, a monument commemorating the Battle of Waterloo marks the spot where the Prince of Orange was wounded.

At the top of the mound's 226 steps, 40m high, stands a cast iron lion, a symbol of the allied victory. It stands astride a globe and was also a symbol of the peace obtained by Europe on the fields of Waterloo.

Erected in 1826, at the spot where the Prince of Orange was wounded on 18 June 1815, the Lion's Mound offers an exceptional panoramic view of the battlefield.


From 2015, at the foot of the Lion's Mound, an underground memorial will present the major historic moments that took place on this  field that Victor Hugo was so fond of.

The Lion's Mound is part of the Waterloo Battlefield visit.
