  • I liked this place very much. Lots of stairs up but wonderful view - one can just imagine how was for those soldiers in 1815. Museum is very interesting and makes you go back in those times. There is a restaurant nearby or you can just buy a sandwich and enjoy the feeling. The parking space is very close and free. Ticket for a museum with audio guide costs acceptable 12 euro.
  • An interesting place with a great historic meaning. They decorated it nicely, the staff could be a bit friendlier but in total it is worth the visit. I suggest taking out two hours of your schedule to be able to watch the 3D movie (goggles included ofc), visiting the elevated monument, checking the souvenir shop and having a nice relaxed drink at the included cafe.
