Utrechtse Heuvelrug, the Pyramid of Austerlitz – The Netherlands

with No Comments


Everybody knows that Austerlitz is not really a Dutch name for a town. It is the place where Napoleon’s French forces made a stunning victory. Only 75,000 French soldiers defeated an army of 90,000. As a result the Netherlands or Bataafse Republic was occupied by the French. The French had a garrison near Utrecht and they build this pyramid as a reminder.
