This cemetery is for sure worth a visit. It is a very peaceful place and well kept. If you are visiting this part of Holland, make sure you visit this cemetery to remember what those soldiers did for our freedom.

My great uncle was killed in Germany in '45 is one of the 8,301 Americans buried at the Netherlands American Cemetery. It's an honor and privilege to visit the cemetery each year.

If you are in the south of Holland please make sure to pay respect to 8000 soldiers that are laid to rest here. The place is very well kept and the graves are placed in the typical US circle. We have been here several times

This was an amazing, heart-warming experience. The cemetery and memorial are just beautiful. Locals come every year to place flowers on the head stones. Just amazing.

His commanding General refused to allow any of his fallen heroes be buried in enemy land,... More

The cemetery in Margraten, the only US cemetery in The Netherlands, is beautiful. It has a huge chapel, and the atmosphere is solemn and respectful. If you in the area this should definitely be a stop on your trip.

We like paying respects to the fallen in World War 'll. This cemetery is beautifully maintained by the Dutch and Americans. The place,set so peacefully in the hills of Limberg in Margarten, is a perfect resting place for heroes. Their sacrifice saved Europe from Hitler and should be appreciated. Make a visit and feel so very proud to be American!!!
