I came to this place on my way to Iwo Jima from the Arlington Cemetery. This place has some of the most beautiful flowers around it & I just took many pictures to capture the beauty of place. They have very little written about the place & its history. Still worth a visit if going to Iwo Jima.

This place is worth visit especially in Spring when tulips are in full bloom. It is also the first stop to get in the Marine Memorial and you can also see the the view of Washington D.C. and not frequently visit area of the Arlington Cemetery.

Close to the Marine Corp Memorial (Iwo Jima) and Arlington Cemetery. Close proximity to both so easy to see enroute to the other.

Worth a stop. Computer generated bell concerts are daily. Live concerts on Saturday evenings in the summer. Spring time tuip gardens are very pretty. Check out the NPS web site at: http://www.nps.gov/gwmp/planyourvisit/netherlandscarillon.htm

You will see this when you visit the Marine Corp Monument as it is right next door. On the moonlight monument tour they also tell you about it as you circle the Marine Monument. For us it was enough to see and learn about on our tour. I was not aware you could climb. I will have to do that... More

An interesting carillon (bell tower) not far from the Iwo Jima memorial. Likely to be something you'll see driving by, as there's no real parking nearby.

This monument is definitely worth a stop. The people of the Netherlands commissioned the monument in 1954 to thank the US for our support during and after WWII. It is surrounded by tulips during the summer which is kind of cool as well. But the view from the top is phenomenal! You look out over the tulips, to the Potomac,... More

The official website leads one to believe that there is a daily recording of the bells played at noon. On the day we visited, there were no bells played so we improvised with our i-phones to hear a concert....Sadly the tower is in poor shape and needs some tender loving care. The biggest attraction is its proximity to the Iwo... More

Other reviewers have covered the +'s & -'s of this GIFT fm The Netherlands. U.S. govt & we, as taxpayers should be ashamed of the poor condition it's in. Recommend visiting in the spring when the weax is warmer & the flowers are blooming. Great view eastward of DC. A sobering reminder that so many other countries suffered far more... More
