This is a beautiful, serene place which nicely pays tribute to many Americans who gave their lives in World War II, most of whom were killed in the "Battle of the Bulge", the most costly battle in WWII in terms of American casualties. It also gives a good overview of the nature and significance of that battle.

This is a wonderfully kept memorial. It was very peaceful and moving. It is not too far from Luxembourg.

Visited the American Cemetery. It is much smaller than the cemetery at Normandy. General Patton is buried here. He was originally buried among his men but so many visitors trampled around his grave that they moved him slightly away from the other graves and put in concrete pavers among the grass. We found several members from Easy Company (Band of... More

Comparing U.S. National Cemeteries is difficult; while this one did not have a comprehensive interpretive center, the caretaker/docent provided a phenomenal guided tour. He easily explained the complexities of the applicable battles and provided factual and anecdotal information to enhance the visit. We went early in the morning to avoid the crowds and this provided an appropriately somber and beautiful... More

We stopped at the American Cemetary in Luxembourg on our way to Paris. It was a very poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by previous generations to preserve our freedoms. There are very informative displays that visually show the scope of American involvement in the European theater. I was not aware that General Patton is buried there. Overall a worthwhile... More

I happened to be here on July 4th and the curator gave an informal but very informative tour. She was asked by some other tourists and we tagged along. She was great and in no way jaded about taking yet again about WWII. Really worth a visit. It is a short city bike cycle from Luxembourg.
