Pyramid of Austerlitz

Pyramid of Austerlitz

The French period in the Netherlands

Woudenberg - The Austerlitz Pyramid was constructed to honour the French emperor Napoleon in the Battle of Austerlitz. It was built by the soldiers of general Auguste Marmont in 1804. His troops were awaiting an invasion of the British army. But that attack never came.

Instead of going to war, the soldiers build the pyramid. It took them 30 days to build.
