In May 2015 my wife and I visited the cemetery as part of a Viking River Cruise tour. I have not previously visited a WWII cemetery like this so found it very striking with the expansive sweep of white crosses - very sobering but at the same time it was so beautiful and tasteful yet grand that I think it...

Very interesting memorial. It describes where the Americans were during WWII. It definitely makes an impression for any visitor. It really makes history come alive.

My family found little to speak of when we were there, as emotion runs strong. I would highly recommend arriving first thing in the morning (9AM) on a weekday to avoid crowds. There were maybe a dozen total people there with us that day. We did not expect to spend so much time, but it was so moving, peaceful and... More

I first visited this memorial over 40 years ago while I was stationed in Europe in the Air Force. It was powerful and a profound realization of the extreme conditions suffered by the various forces. Revisiting the site, older, perhaps no wiser, still evokes strong emotions and deep gratitude for all who served and sacrificed during the conflict.

I am a fan of cemetery and I have been in many cemetery around Europe. However, this one is different. This is an American style which you definitely must see. Very big, green and in discipline. It is not crowded and everything is extremely clean. You should go and watch yourself.

Visited this place on a Saturday morning very well look after cemetery/memorial We arrived just after 9am and there were already 3 bus loads of tourists. I can see why it's the number 1 attraction for Luxembourg. Free entry so drop by and remember them. Toilets also available free of charge and clean.

I had no idea General Patton was buried in Luxembourg. Thank you TripAdvisor for pointing us to this memorial on our recent trip. It was a touching and memorable visit that we won't soon forget.

In addition to being a tribute to the over 5000 men who are laid to rest at the cemetery, the memorials at the head of the cemetery honor all those who served in the European Theater during World II. The memorial area gives a great panoramic view of the cemetery. General George Patton's grave is just below the memorial and... More

This is such an emotional place to visit. It really brought tears to my eyes. This is also the place where General Patton is buried. When I see the extreme far right parties rising all over Europe I sometimes think that all those soldiers might have died for nothing.

Although not American we visited this place to pay our respects to all those that lost their lives. The area is nicely done and kept. Patton's grave is the same as his men. He is buried at the top looking done at the thousands of other crosses and a few star of David ( for the jewish soldiers who died... More
