I visited this place years ago and had to return on my recent trip. Set in stunning woodland, the cemetery is well kept and maintained, a gem in the landscape. Thank you to the Dutch for this beautiful place and for keeping it in such wonderful condition. There is another cemetery across the road with a rather misleading sign -... More

This place moves the emotions as you see row upon row of young men (20-21) who gave their lives in the ill fated Market Garden operation or the Bridge too Far in 1944.

This is a very sombre place to visit especially when you can feel a personal connection to the cemetery. The love the locals show to these young men is beautiful and they keep the cemetery beautifully you could not hope to rest in a more beautiful place the greatest respect should be shown not only to the brave soldiers that...

Oosterbeek Airborne Cemetery contains the graves of almost 2000 Commonwealth and Polish soldiers and airmen who fought at the Battle of Arnhem and sacrificed their lives for their country. As with all such Commonwealth war cemeteries it is beautifully maintained and is a tranquil haven at which to pay your respects and reflect upon the horrors and the futility of... More

Took a group for a visit and a wreath laying ceremony with standard bearers and some of my group bearing medals with the dignity of such a ceremony requires. A must visit if you visit arnhem

CWGC cemeteries are always moving and this one with so many graves from the same action when the Paras tried to hold the bridge is perhaps one of the most poignant. The services the dutch hold here every year are a very moving and an example to we British in how to pass onto our children the importance of remembering.

I went on an extremely quiet day in October. It was sunny but windy and the sounds of the leaves and trees was all there was. The grass is perfect. The surrounding fields are perfect. It is an amazing memorial cemetery and from above in the sky looks like a large cross. This is a perfect little piece of Holland... More

Called in on a very rainy day. Somber place but worth the trip. Help you get things into perspective. Helpful grave guide if you are looking for a relative. Well kept with lots of parking

Most of the soldiers fallen in the battle for Arnhem and resting here. Mainly British and Polish soldiers. After seeing the Airborne museum close by, this round of your market garden experience. So sad to see so many young men died. They had their whole life in front of them... But they died for the freedom of Europe today.

Truly one of the places that I visit on every occasion when nearby at Arnhem or Nijmegen. The site is kept impeccably and should be a must see visitor attraction. My only complaint, not of the cemetery but of a group of visitors that I had to talk to. This is a cemetery so show respect, don't sit on the... More
