After a long day in Luxembourg City, we were not expecting to visit the Luxembourg American Cemetery Memorial, but when we drove past, we just pulled in and couldn't have been happier that we had. Although it was closing time and the gates were in the process of closing for the night, a incredibly kind man, who was a war... More

Lots of parcels wasted here for false heroes. Men with guns should not be honoured! Place would be nice for some extra-urban living in style, but don't grow salads, the soil is spoiled with americans

As sad as it is to see the graves of so many fallen soldiers, including those "known but to God", there is a peacefulness in seeing them honored in such beautiful and well-maintained surroundings.

The Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial is a short drive from Luxembourg City and the drive is well worth the time and effort. If you are an American visiting Luxembourg the trip to these hallowed grounds is a must. When we arrived early on a Saturday morning there were very few cars in the parking lot however; there were at... More

I went alone today but did not appreciate how isolated the actual walk from the bus stop (line 15) is to get to the gates of the cemetery. It was an isolated path under a bridge with noone in sight. I felt very vulnerable. Definitely better with a companion. My review is of the journey not the cemetery.

A wonderful but somber reminder of the price for our freedoms. General Patton's grave is also here, set apart from the others. Great staff that are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

The cemetery is beautifully maintained. Viewing the mass of white crosses is a stark reminder of those who gave so much for our freedom. Walking around the area is a very moving experience. We had a knowledgeable guide who explained the maps and gave history of some of the fallen. A must visit in Luxembourg.

I don't think you have to be particularly interested in military history to appreciate a visit to the American Military Cemetery in Luxembourg. Seeing all the white crosses will put anyone in a pensive and reflective frame of mind. It's easy to get to on public transport. Take Bus 15 across the road from the main train station in the...

While not as large as the American Cemetery at Normandy, this one is just as humbling. Those of us who benefit from the sacrifice of those buried here and the many many more whose families brought the bodies of their loved ones home for burial need to be reminded from time to time that freedom is truly not free. Someone... More
