After having visited the cemetery at Normandy I did not think this would be worthy of my time - and I was WRONG. The curator was kind enough to provide a narrative for the tour, which was not only educational, but told in such a way as to be spell-binding. A wreath was placed at the chapel and was an... More

For all who enjoy history, then this is a must. A general buried with his troops. There is one woman buried in this cemetery (spot it by looking for the flowers).

Beautiful! Our family went there on a Sunday. Quiet, peaceful, and awe inspiring! I suggest all Americans to go here if you can! We talk about Iraq and Afganstan, but if we did not win this one, we would all be living different lives!

I just went here today and I had to breathe through the knot in my throat. An imposing memorial to the kids who gave it all for the freedom we enjoy today and so often take for granted. Facing them is the cross bearing the name of George S. Patton. If you are ever around this little corner of Luxembourg,... More

Most of the soldiers died during the Battle of the Bulge which was fought nearby in the winter of 1944/1945. The cemetery has over 50 acres and the two war maps were very informative. The cemetery closes at 5 PM!!

My father fought in WWll but was on Iwo Jima, in the Marines. I am proud of all the military.. General Patton is still commanding his men as his grave is overlooking his men.... More

This was a must see on our recent vacation. Both our fathers served in WWII, and my husband is a history buff that recently read about The Battle of the Bulge. I was deeply moved looking over the immaculate grounds, filled with crosses & Stars of David for so many soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. General Patton's grave is... More

This is a gorgeous memorial for American soldiers lost in the Luxembourg area in WWII. There is not a good way to get there through public transportation (at least not in April 2015), so best option is to take a taxi.
