Great Views from the Mardasson Memorial

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.

A large memorial to the American soldiers and airmen who fought in Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. A massive edifice in the shape of an American Star/roundel lists all fifty states and the names of all of the units that participated in the fighting. A small crypte/chapel lies below. You can climb to the top for a view... More

In the shape of a star - showing all the States of the U.S.A by name. A short walk from the Bastogne War Museum and the rooftop viewing area looking out over the open landscape available for all to access.

This place took my breath away. Two mates and I travelled from the Forest of Dean to check this place out and it didn't disappoint. It was a cold December morning when we arrived. Around 10am with cloudless blue skies. The sun was low in the sky and there was hardly anyone about, not a sound of wildlife or engines... More

Mardasson Memorial is a monument dedicated to the eternal friendship between Belgians and Americans. The Belgians sure appreciate that the U.S. troops were present when the Nazis tried to reconquer the Ardennes at the end of the second World War. A plaque in the middle of the memorial points out: "The people of Belgium remember their American liberators". 76,890 American... More

If this monument was not right next to the museum, it would not be worth the time with so much more interesting and reflective attractions in the Bastonge area.

Sobering without being a cemetery. Visit the chapels, and be sure to climb to the top of the monument so you can see the areas where the battle took place.

Very moving memorial to those that lost their lives at the Battle of the Bulge. A very somber place where over 50,000 US soldiers were killed. We climbed up to the top of the memorial and saw the area of the fighting and the open countryside. The war museum is near by, that is also very worthwhile to see.

Next to the War museum. A few stairs to climb and great views to get an idea where the fighting took place.

This memorial honors the memory of the 76,890 American soldiers who were wounded or killed during the Battle of the Bulge. The inner walls are covered with ten paintings from the battle, the outer crown is engraved with the names of the 50 U.S. States, and the insignia of most participating battalions are shown on the walls. Below the structure,... More
