This is another amazing, touching military cemetery. The white crosses all polished and in perfect rows. This place is kept up beyond your imagination. If a cemetery can be perfect, this one is. Thank you Vets!!

This is a beautiful, immaculately maintained 50 acres site containing the headstones of 5,076 American soldiers, including one female army nurse, who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country to liberate European countries under invasion. Twenty-two sets of brothers reside there, along with the names of 371 missing in action and a few unmarked grave headstones. Their leader,... More

This is a must see if you are an American visiting Luxembourg. To see the graves of Medal of Honor recipients, George Patton and over 5,000 soldiers who gave their lives liberating Europe will humble anyone. Study up on the Battle of the Bulge and on the Allied efforts in 1944 & 1945 before coming for a better understanding on... More

A visit to the American cemetery revealed that most men buried there had been repatriated home. General Patton remains at the head of his men. He was initially buried with his men but pilgrimages to his grave caused problems. The sight of all the crosses and Stars of David is moving even for non-Americans, although some of the display panels... More

VIsited with a tour bus group. Had an excellent local guide who was a boy during the conflict. Beautiful grounds and location well kept. Was able to push a colleague in a wheel chair to see Gen. George Patton's grave. Small but beautiful chapel with wonderful mosaic on the ceiling.

This is now my second visit, the first in the early eighties. The grounds are beautiful, calming, emotional, and unforgettable. Make sure to visit! A bit of advise for those walking or taking the train around Luxembourg. You take train number 15, try to make sure you're on the bus "currently" stopping at "Kaschtewee". If you end up on the...

As a Vietnam Era Veteran and who's father was a bomber pilot in WWII this brings our generations closer. Walk through the rows of those that gave all and consider this is a lung the smallest of the American Cemeteries in Europe.

Was staying in Trier, Germany and decided to take a little trip to Luxembourg and see this cemetery. If you are a history buff, particular WWII, then this will be quite the treat and it also very moving. Most of the interred died during the Battle of the Bulge, which was fought nearby in winter 1944/1945. Of note, General George... More

The Memorial and Military Cemetary will give you a very good overview of how the Allies staved off the Ardennes Offensive in late 1944 and gradually pushed back the German armies from Belgium through Luxembourg back into Germany. Overlooking the more than 5000 gravestones, you may take the measure of the sacrifices so many individuals made to liberate Europe. The... More
