Very impressive and awe-inspiring memorial to the American troops killed during the 2WW. Worth walking the stairs as the view from the top is spectacular.

We were here with a tour group and the weather was awful! We still made our way through the Memorial. It's very moving. If you are anywhere close you owe it to yourself to check it out.

This striking memorial monument is kinda stuck out in the middle of no where. However, they do a nice job of telling the story how the brave young men fought here

The construction and sentiment behind this are great but who set out the words carved into the monument?? I have never seen so many words hyphenated over two lines. I am no English language snob but there was not one panel where this did not happen making reading the rather prosy words difficult and for a non English speakers quite... More

Massive structure in the shape of a star to commemorate the American service personnel who died during the WW2 battles around Bastogne. On our visit they were working on a new display hall on the site, which will probably be well worth a visit.

Very nice memorial to those who fought in WWII in that area. Certainly worth a visit. Unfortunately we did not have time for the museum. Have to do that next time.

Went here on a guided trip with Henri Mignon. He is not listed as a guide on Trip Advisor....he should be. This sight was one of many amazing sights we visited.

Really nice memorial that is kept clean and tidy. The story of Bastogne is told on the inside pillars and is well worth a read. Well done and thanks
