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....

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.

In a lovely setting, this memorial is a perfect way to end your visit to the Bastogne Museum. The view from the top of the monument provides many photo opportunities as well.

We loved the fact that this memorial was 50 feet from the Bastogne War Museum. The memorial is very well done.

Bastogne has its own memorial dedicated to all of the American soldiers who fought and died there. The view from the top after a short climb up the stairs is worth the effort. Not as informative as the Normandy equivalent, but then again, the Americans don't have a piece of lasnd donated to them and financed by US funds like... More
