Quiet and vast cemetery with perfectly manicured gardens and white marble headstones of over 14000 people who died for their country during WW1. The cemetery is like a living monument to honour these people who never made it back home. Rest in peace all who were placed here.

We travel a lot by car in France and have visited 4 American cemeteries, including Normandy. They are always so well done with respect that you cannot help but be awed. The superintendents are knowledgable and so willing to answers questions and chat. Be sure and stop in if you go.

The serenity and quietness as I walked among the headstones of those that gave their lives was very humbling.

This place is actually the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery from WWII. It is an amazing beautiful location that is somewhat remote. I highly recommend visiting. You can also get facts and figures from the American Battle Monuments site. I was on the way to Paris to pick up the wife and daughter and go to Normandy. Would loved to have showed... More

If you ever plan a trip to Northern France, please make sure you have Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery on your list of places to visit. Start out with the museum tour by watching the D-Day video with the greatest armada ever in human history. The museum has artifacts and personal items from that historic event. Then walking amongst... More

This cemetery from World War I is the largest American cemetery in Europe, and it is beautifully landscaped on a hill. The other side of the road is also part of the cemetery but there are no graves. However, one has a nice view on the cemetery from this side.

Forget everything you have ever seen. This place is absolutely beautiful, humbling and breathtaking. Get there early and head for the main building... you will be pleasantly surprised. The chimes will will remain with you forever. Enough said. You need to visit if passing... it's the least you can do. We will never forget. And always remember them.

Like all US Military cemeteries this one is very beautifully laid out but very humbling as well. It is actually located a short distance outside of Verdun so don’t think you’ve missed it. Worth the drive north to see it though.

Visited on a rainy day, but was not much of the battle on rainy days but this added to the gloom. Glad to see at least a few people remember.
