“Very beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

How do you rate a cemetery?

This cemetery is very well maintained and kept really nice. It's a good spot for a cemetery of this kind.
General George Patton is burried here, his spot is easy to find.

Many of these mostly young men lost their lives in the battle of the bulge in the surrounding areas.

Don't miss the German cemetery near by. It's food for thought.

“Great taste of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Before the visit to the American cemetery, I had not visited any of the war memorials in Europe. The cemetery is a must see on a visit to Luxembourg. The grounds are very well maintained and there are a number of large memorials. General Patton is buried here also. The large maps near the memorial show the different battle areas in Europe.

“The American Military Cemetery in Luxembourg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Beautiful monument to those who gave their lives in WW2. General Patton's grave has top billing at the head of the cemetery. Beautifully maintained; a moving experience

“Peaceful, Moving, Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We visited here while on a tour of Luxembourg. We would not have opted to go here otherwise. What a mistake it would have been. This cemetery is beautiful and full of historical information. It is the final resting place of General Patton and so many who served under him. Beautiful Rhododendrons and a carillon.

If you have a chance to go here, I highly recommend it.

Visited the cemetery for Memorial Day. It is a beautiful layout and well taken care of. Parking is free and walking around the cemetery is very nice. A must do while in Luxembourg.
