We visited the cemetery on the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Luxembourg. Our local tour guide was there as a teenager. He had pictures that he had taken that day and he day of Patton's funeral with his box camera. He was wonderful. His memories are as sharp as the day they occurred. He himself is a national treasure!

It was beautiful and so well kept. I spoke to a local who said that he comes here all the time to get to know the guys who gave their lives so that his country could be free.

This park is a well-kept memorial and cemetery with gorgeous grounds. It is a lovely, honorable tribute to the American military soldiers who have battled in WWI and WWII. If you have more than a day or two in Luxembourg, be sure to take an hour or two to visit. You will be pleasantly surprised. We felt a bond with... More

If this cemetery doesn't make you think about what our men and women in the U.S. Miltary did for us and continue to do for us nothing will. Even though you can't see the faces of the Americans that laid down there lives during the Battle of the Bulge and other battles in the area, seeing the shear number of... More

As with all American Cemeteries, its a place where you can say thank you to people you can never repay in this life. Its very easy to get to and spend 2-3 hours looking around and taking in the history. Ask when you get there if there is a guide giving a tour, their knowledge of the battles is amazing.... More

The cemetery is impeccably maintained and features beautiful stone maps on the monuments detailing the Battle of the Bulge and the entire campaign from Normandy to the war's end. A must visit to pay your respects to General Patton. The visitor's centre also provides fantastic insights into the personal stories. A visit to the nearby German cemetery is also highly... More

This solemn and neatly kept monument causes one to reflect on the bravery and sacrifice of so many. It is also the last resting place for General Patton.

We arrived late and am glad we did, just as we got to the memorial last post played, what a perfect way to remember all those men and women, known and in unmarked graves.

This cemetery is very fitting resting place for those that sacrificed their lives during the Second World War. At the entrance of the cemetery is a good visitor centre giving details of some of the soldiers buried here. It is immaculately maintained with descriptions of the battles in which the majority of the soldiers lost their lives.
