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.

I was not willing to visit the cemetery because I already knew,as read in any other review,that it is very isolated,and I was there yesterday alone. The way on foot from the bus station to the cemetery was a little bit scary,but I forgot everything when I got the place. Definitely impressive, and the place is really peaceful and well... More

The cemetery is very impressive in size and is a good stop for people who wish to pay tribute to the ones who sacrificed their lives for peace and freedom. A very important stop in one's trip, especially for history buffs.

A sober and moving reminder of the aftermath of war...Patton is buried here. Like most US military cemeteries, one is struck by the care and though that went into its design. Enough information is provided to give a visitor enough context to understand its importance relative to WWII.

Not as beautiful as some of the other American cemeteries we have been privileged to visit, but always awe inspiring. General Patton, who died as a result of a car crash in Italy, asked to be buried here with his men.

Take some time and visit this site. I've been to Luxembourg several times and almost on every visit I went there. I guess that says it all.

We stopped at the American Cemetery Memorial in Hamm, Luxembourg to pay our respects to all those valorous American soldiers who gave their lives in the service of our country in WWII, primarily during the Battle of the Bulge. It was a deeply moving experience. Over five thousand headstones, white and immaculate crosses or Stars of David, grace the fifty... More

One of many American cemeteries in Europe, this one is the final resting place of some 5,000 Americans, including General George S. Patton who is revered for twice liberating Luxembourg, before, and then again after the Battle of the Bulge. Its rows of neatly manicured grave sites, reminiscent of so many other U.S. Military cemeteries, may be viewed from a... More

The cemetery reminded us of the one in Normandy we visited with the kids in the early nineties. It's a very beautiful and serene place that is kept in immaculate condition. The memorial area is moving with the tablets of the 371 Missing in Action, the mosaic in the chapel ceiling and the graves area containing the remains of 5076... More
