If you are a world war buff, this memorial is a must see. A sad reflection of the life lost but a fitting way to remember the sacrifice. Great views of Bastogne and don't forget to visit the crypt. Right next to Bastogne war museum

Definitely see when you visit the War Museum. There are nice views of the area from the top of the memorial.

Worth visiting in its own right but certainly after a visit to the Bastogne War Museum. From the top of the memorial there are good views over the countryside where the battles took place.

There is a special atmosphere around the Mardasson, but this could be that it is just me. I always feel sad when I am standing there and looking up. You can climb on the roof and have a beautiful view of Bastogne and surroundings. Worth a visit if you are interested in everything concerning WWII.

This memorial was constructed by the local population to honor the efforts of the US military from D-Day to Bastogne. It's a reminder that many in Europe still remember the human cost by Americans to win their freedom from the Nazis.

The Mardasson Memorial is a fitting tribute to the American soldiers who served and died in the liberation Belgium and its defense during the Battle of the Bulge. Certain areas of the memorial, such as the inscribed memorial stone, could use some maintenance, but overall it is a nice memorial. If possible, climb the spiral staircase to the top of... More

Traveled here on a 1 day USO tour from Germany. Our tour guide mentioned this is the largest Outside the Continental United States (OCONUS). Did not climb the steps, or visit the crypt time was limited. Easy access by wheelchair, did not look for an elevator to the top. Gift shop, snack bar, toilets, and museum are in same building....

If you are visiting the Bastogne War Museum, it's worth taking a bit of time to see the Mardasson Memorial. The views from the top are good, and the memorial itself is a heartwarming tribute to tens of thousands of American troops who were killed or injured in the Battle of the Bulge. Take a quick walk down to the... More

I was very moved by my entire experience in Bastogne. It was like going back in time. The Mardasson Memorial had extremely great views and it was a very enjoyable walk, definatley worth the trek from Luxembourg. I strongly recommend to any History enthusiasts.
