As a retiree, stopping at the US military cemeteries in Europe is a must for me. This is the cemetery where General George S. Patton is buried. Like he did in real life, he's at the front of the troops. There are also several of the "Band of Brothers" buried in this cemetery. It's smaller than the ones at Normandy,... More

If you spend more than 4 days in the Bastonge Luxembourg City area, you should see first hand the true cost of war. This is the place to do it. While many people will pay their respects at General Patton's site, please spend another 15 minutes viewing honoring some of other fallen heroes. I was moved to view the dates... More

I've been to Arlington National Cemetery and while this does not compare on a size basis, it is still very humbling and respectfully done. America always honors it's veterans. I would recommend going by the German cemetery right down the road for comparison.

The sheer vastness and serenity of this cemetery really affected me as I meandered through the graves of the fallen WWII soldiers. I felt the utmost respect and sadness for these men and woman and I really didn't expect this. My only knowledge of WWII comes from films and t.v shows but coming face-to-face with a real WWII environment put... More

The American Cemetery in Luxembourg is a stunning tribute to fallen American soldiers of World War II. The drama of the site is in the layout -- ever changing view of pure white headstones stretching out across the perfect lawn, the patterns shifting and changing as do the states from which the soldiers came. And reading all the names. A... More

The honor and respect shown the American fallen is very much evident at this cemetery. Patton's grave-site is modest and well done. The bell tower is a beautiful structure and it was peaceful walking through the tombstones. Please stop and take your time to understand that freedom around the world comes at a cost. God bless these soldiers.

This is a calm place of remembrance - beautifully kept. I went here with a friend and my daughter in August 2013.

A "must visit" in Luxembourg. Not only the burial place of Patton, but a great history lesson on WWII. Beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommended to also visit the Germany cemetery about 2 kms away.
