Coming from Belgium, knowing the history of Napoleon (e.g. waterloo), it was interesting to visit this place as well. Teach my son and myself some history. I had some mixed feelings, on one hand you get good information on the history, on the other hand, it feels like the focus is on the fun part with the theme park for kids. The monument itself... it is what it is and each can have his/her thoughts about it. No regrets we made the stop, but don't spend too much time here.

Historically interesting, however the climb up the pyramid and the view from the top are less spectacular. Since there are lots of forests you do not really see a lot. Still nice to stop by if you are in the area.

In 1804, an army camp was established near Zeist, led by the French general de Marmont. The camp included three army units, two of which were French and one Batavian. The Marmont, who had been campaigning with Napoleon in Egypt in 1798, wanted to have an eternal memory point for himself and had the soldiers build a pyramid from loam. This was based on the pyramid of Giza. The pyramid was ready on October 4, 1804. Eventually she was renamed the 'pyramid of Austerlitz', partly because the troops from the camp had fought in this battle.

The pyramid of Austerlitz is not far from the village of Austerlitz, near to the N224.

If your in the area, well worth a look! Used by Napoleons army as a look out post around early 18th century and built by hand! The army was getting a little fat and lazy from what I understand.Make sure you walk all the way around and then visit the local village for a bite to eat, at the Eetcafe : Ouwekamp in centre of Austerlitz.

A little bit of underwhelming experience. The structure itself whilst interesting enough is quite expensive given that it's essentially a walk up some stairs and back down again (and an A4 page of information). I probably wouldn't have paid the entry had I not specifically hiked there to visit the pyramid!

It looks like a simple monument but it has a big story behind. The location is in a beautiful woody area. You can take a walk around the pyramid or climbing the pyramid for only € 3.00. Up at the pyramid, you will see all around boards with information about the history of the pyramid, the design, what place you could probably see far in the horizon by clear sunny day. It's very informative. It worths for your money. You still learn a lot up there. It's really not for people with knies problem. Free parking

Very unusual place and worth a few hours visit, nice woods to walk in, food service and a free demonstration room for the history of the area (also very interesting)

A very nice experience and also the hikes that are available are very interesting. I recommend the yellow path as you get to explore around the pyramide and also you get to see some people doing horse riding.

This place is near Utrecht in the centre of The Netherlands, less than an hour drive from Amsterdam. It offers you nature to walk or bike, a story about History and a nice view from the top of the Pyramid and most of all an old fashion playground. There is no entrance fee, a view attractions will cost 1 Euro and for the parking you can give a tip or not.
Kids love the place and some parents get nervous. After running in nature and climbing the pyramid, children jump in whatever is offered; swinging, gliding, climbing and more. Little is electric, most just robust steal. Yes, they can hurt themselves but it gives freedom and they learn to take care in the old fashion way. The terrace is nearby and gives you a view on the playground.
Hours will fly and the Kids will sleep on the way back 😊

Great place to learn some Dutch history: dating back to 1804 this place commemorates the French ruling over the area as it was erected in honour of Napoleon by his friend and army leader Marmont.

The view is well worth the climb (93 steps) and the surrounding forests are worth a visit as well. Several routes are signposted, roughly ranging from 1 to 2 hour walks. Next to the parking lot one finds a playground (offering both paid and unpaid attractions), despite being somewhat outdated, kids will definitely have some fun while the parents can enjoy a drink.

Note that opening hours in winter time are limited (Only Sundays I think).
