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. He gave all the details of this and all about the Battle of the Bulge from a personal experience standpoint as he was a young boy that lived through... More

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

Hard to be here and not be touched. The sacrifice, and pain endured is hard to imagine. The view from the top, and realizing the titanic battle that took place here just boggles the imagination.

I visited the Mardasson Memorial. It was the impressive in its scope and architecture. the 5 points representing the star from the American flag and the recognition of the units that fought were impressive.

My family went here and had a great experience all around. It was very humbling seeing all the battalions that were honored and had an effect here. Also the place was very well kept . They were doing construction on the parking lot and I hope parking is easier once they have finished. There were fresh flowers at the crypt... More

Form of a star, Belgians honoring 76890 American soldiers killed wounded or MIA trying to liberate towns in the battle of Ardennes. Lovely tribute and makes your heart sing to know that the Belgians appreciated the sacrifice of theses American men and women who never got to come home. Proud to be an American in this lovely country!
