Deeply moving place. By coincidence I was there at the same time as a party of troops from 3 Para laying a wreath and that made it even more atmospheric.

A visit to a war cemetery always makes me humble. To realise that all those young people gave their lives to enable us to live in peace for more than seventy years now, fills me with awe. It is a peaceful place. Every year the people of Oosterbeek commemorate the battle with the remaining veterans. Impressive. Good place to dwell... More

Walked all around and couldn't find any directions to a visitor centre - bit... More

Beautifully maintained - in a peaceful setting - heartbreaking when you see that they were just boys.

When you arrive here at this cemetery and you see all those young men you will immediately be silent. It is so impressive that you feel humble, sad and free at the same time. All those men from abroad who gave their lives for out freedom. I went there with my my wife, three children and their friends to pass... More

As you would expect, a very emotional site. Peaceful. Serene. Well-kept. It was truly sad to read the ages of each of these brave young soldiers. RIP
