After visiting the Bastogne War Museum it is an easy walk to the Mardasson Memorial. It is much larger than it appears, and placed upon a hill overlooking the Bulge battleground it is quite impressive. The story of the Battle of the Bulge, and recognition of American troops who fought there, is engraved upon the stones making up the star-shaped... More

The Mardasson Memorial was the most impressionable monument I visited during a two year stay in Belgium. My grandfather went through Bastogne as a medic just after the Battle of the Bulge. Unfortunately he passed while I was too young to know questions to ask. Difficult to describe in words being at the same place in another country he was... More

The citizens of Bastogne erected this memorial in honor of the US Army and soldiers that fought so bravely to save the city from the Nazis.

Stunning and the introduction on the slates inside the memorial are really interesting. Followed up inside the museum next door. N.B if it is raining take care on top it was a little slippy when we visited.

As war memorials go this one imposes itself on your mind and stays there long after you leave it. Located next to the recently renovated Bastogne War Museum both places are worth going out of your way to visit. Shaped like a 5 pointed start when viewed from the top the memorial is a solemn one. The US order of... More

a place that carries more than just a sight-seeing point of interest, but a place to connect with the past, to revisit history, an important landmark - the exhibition is very interesting and the book store has so much on offer - taking time to read what's on the stones - a good manner to spend an entire day -...

Traveling as a family, we were all eager to spend a day at this now rather historic museum. It is easy to find, just outside the city limits of Bastogne. The entry fee is fair, and they even offer discount for Senior Citizens. The WWII exhibits are varied and interesting. The display cases are full of old uniforms, guns, knives,... More

This is a beautiful and fitting tribute to the bravery of the young men who sacrificed so much. A time to poise and reflect.
