Long Description:
The town was founded on August 17, 1806 on the location of a French army camp. It was given its name by King Louis Napoleon of Holland in honour of the victory of his brother, emperor Napoleon in the Battle of Austerlitz.

Close to the town, there is an artificial hill called the Pyramid of Austerlitz, actually part of the municipality Woudenberg. It was built in 1804 by the soldiers of general Auguste Marmont. It used to be a popular day out to climb the watch tower on top of the pyramid, but nowadays the tower is no longer open to the public, due to instability of the slopes. (The monument has now been restored.)
