Bastogne has its own memorial dedicated to all of the American soldiers who fought and died there. The view from the top after a short climb up the stairs is worth the effort. Not as informative as the Normandy equivalent, but then again, the Americans don't have a piece of lasnd donated to them and financed by US funds like... More

Be sure to go to the top of the Memorial via the steps and on the lower level read the 10 panels that provide an explanation of the Battle of the Bulge. Well worth the time spent reading.

Impressive monument for the battle of the bulge. Read the description of the battle on the walls. Good view of the surrounding area from the roof.

This memorial is very nice and the views from the top are amazing. The story that is told on the various columns also provides a brief overview of the events for those not versed in what took place. It is a bit confusing on how you get to the memorial since they have now opened the war museum directly in... More

Perhaps a unique perspective having visited the memorial in 1981 we visited once with our kids and again in 2014 with our grandkids. I must say that I was definately disappointed in the condition of the memorial it looks as though no one is taking care of the deterioration of the structure of the memorial and that the surface is...

This beautiful and moving memorial is in the shape of a five pointed star and it honors the memory of the 76,890 American soldiers killed, wounded or missing in action during the Battle of the Bulge. More civilians were killed during the six weeks of this battle than in all four years of the war, and it was the last... More

A very striking and thought provoking memorial which somehow reflects the enormity of the sacrifice and showed me quite vividly how far those young brave men came from to fight and die for freedom.

Loved this memorial, brought back great memories of my Great Uncles and the sacrifice that they made not only for America, but Europe as well.
