There is a saying that only the war dead know the true horrors of war, well the reminders of the war are buried here and some still remain waiting to be reunited with their Airborne brothers in this beautiful part of Holland.

Very sad. So many young people died in wars. The place is well kept and surrounding forest is beautiful.

Like most of the Commonwealth cemetries a well maintained, peaceful and impressive cemetery. Nicely situated just outside of Oosterbeek. Every 1st Saturday in September during the so called 'Airborne Wandeltocht', more than 35.000 hikers visit the Cemetery. You should also visit The Air Dispatchers monument (around 100 meters to the North of the main entrance).

A beautiful little cemetery that is well mentioned, peaceful and a perfect resting place for those unfortunate enough to have required a place. Easy walking distance of the museum so perfect to tie in with a visit.

As with all British war cemetaries this place is well tended and a sobering reminder of the effects of war. Will mankind ever learn?

A very reflective place to go and remember the young men who gave their lives in this bloody conflict 70 years ago . A plan that might have shortened the 2nd World War , but ended in disaster for the allies .

Very impressive, peaceful. Well maintained. The autumn leaves all added to the charm. Emotional though, reading the stones, one that particularly touched me was:- I miss your smile, your loving ways, with you I spent my happiest days.

Need I say more? Heroes, every single one of them. Take your time to walk around the cemetary and think. Think hard.
