Pyramid of Austerlitz/Pyramide van Austerlitz (Pyramid of Austerlitz) Woudenberg Nederland Drone (The Netherlands drone)Pyramid of Austerlitz, Woudenberg, Netherlands/In 1804 the French General Auguste de Marmont established an army camp in this central location in the Batavian Republic, the present Netherlands, (le Camp d'Utrecht) where over a period of several months he managed to forge together various battalions into a large, well-trained army, capable of beating the British enemy should there be any repetition of the invasion of 1799. Satisfied with the military power of the new army, and to occupy his bored soldiers, in the autumn of 1804 Marmont had his soldiers build an earth and turf monument inspired by the pyramid of Giza, which Marmont had seen in 1798 during Napoleon’s Egyptian campaign. Even the erosion-exposed stepped surface was imitated. Construction lasted 27 days. The pyramid hill was 36 metres high and was surmounted by a 13 metre high wooden obelisk. It was named "Mont Marmont" or "Marmontberg". en.wikipedia.org Pyramide van Austerlitz with Dji Phantom 2 Drone with Gopro (The Netherlands) Captured with my Gopro hero 3 silver The Pyramid of Austerlitz is a 36 metre high pyramid of earth, built in 1804 by Napoleon's soldiers on one of the highest points of the Utrecht ridge, in the municipality of Woudenberg.
