The cemetery is well-maintained and humble in its design. The welcome center does a nice job of informing visitors who is buried here and highlights a few interred to include some of the "Band Of Brothers", Patton, and the story of a local resident's story of seeing soldiers who had freed the city of Nazi occupation. Beautiful artwork and historical... More

I took the bus from the city and then had to walk down a trail for about a mile, but it was worth the trek. The staff was so dedicated and the cemetary was well kept. Anyone that has a few hours should visit. Of course, the famous Gen. G.S. Patton is buried there along with more the 5000 members... More

I am by far a history buff, but must say that I enjoyed my visit here. We were too close not to spend the 15 minutes to get to the sight. I took my 6 year old son and he too learned something. I have been to many cemetaries, but something about the number of white crosses is touching. A... More

We did a day-trip to the cemetery while vacationing in Germany and it was well worth the drive. The only issue is it is a little hard to find. But that is no reflection on the cemetery. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the cemetery and all buildings are immaculate. Don't miss the museum by the front gate.... More

But don't forget to visit the German cemetry too, just a few minutes away by car. The contrast is striking.

The sheer number of those crosses gives you a (small) idea of the outrageous number of people killed. The placed itself is well taken care of Worth a visit

Bit of a trek out from the city but well worth it. Immaculately kept grounds with an interesting little museum at the front gate. They are busy making a new shop/ coffee area at present as there are no such facilities at present, although there are toilet facilities provided .Museum keeper could have been friendlier!

Erwin, our guide was great! We got lost and delayed, but he was still able to give us great information and a guided tour of the grounds. He was very informative and very professional with our small group. There is a lot of information that is educational located on the grounds. If you don't have a guide, you may miss... More

Located a few kilometers out of town. The cemetery is kept in an impeccable way. At the entrance, lots of information about the location of the Allied and German troops during WW2. Walking along the graves you can see the names of hundreds, thousands, of young Americans (Christian, Jewish, Muslim) who gave their life for the freedom of Europe. Check... More

There are over 5000 white crosses which is thought provoking and sad as you walk around. The maps are interesting plotting the invasions
