Although the building is very old, it was well maintained. The parking next to the Museum can be used to visit this landmark.

Next to the excellent Bastogne War Museum, the memorial Commemorates the American servicemen lost in action during the Bartle of the Bulge in which the USA lost more men than in any other single action during WWII.

The simplicity of the memorial is so striking. It's a huge structure but is just outstandingly beautiful in it's simplicity. Definitely worth a visit to pay respect to those who died and those who remain lost...

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.
