We visited on May 4, 2014, the Dutch National Remembrance Day. As a Canadian with Dutch parents, it was heartwarming to see Dutch people visiting the cemetery and paying tribute to those who died in WW2, many of them to free Holland. The cemetery is immaculate and so well maintained. It is well worth a visit, especially for Canadians.

A well maintained Canadian war cemetery in the hills of Groesbeek. The place is a memory of the battle that took place after Operation Market Garden and the following fights taking place for months in this area

We came to visit the grave of my Uncle and found this to be a very humbling experience. One cannot help but be moved by seeing the graves of all the young soldiers buried here. The cemetery is immaculate and I want to thank all the young Dutch children who spend the time to keep it so beautiful. I hope... More

What a beautiful, quiet, sad, very moving area to walk around and to read the headstones of a little over 2600 Heros, where 2338 are Canadian. It will bring you to tears . We visited over Rememberence Day, Nov 11/12 while visiting the whole Operation Market Garden area. Read the ages, and you think of your own children. Read the... More

Visiting the Nijmegen area is facing the second world war. Nijmegen suffered during the war and especially 1944 was a black page in the history of the city. Visiting the War Cemetery and looking at all the graves, in a peace full setting, makes you believe what they faced.

I came here to visit the grave of my uncle and found myself very moved, not just for him, but by the more than 2000 others who sacrificed their young lives and are remembered here. The cemetery is in a peaceful rural setting, immaculately maintained and tastefully laid out. There is a registry located near the entrance behind a brass... More
