The American Cemetery in Luxembourg has a very tranquil setting bordered by beautiful tress and well-kept grounds. There is a beautiful Memorial Chapel as soon as you enter the grounds with huge granite walls nearby with diagrams depicting the battles in Europe. General George S. Patton rests here as do a few members of the 101st Airborne known as the... More

The Battle of the Bulge resulted in the loss of thousands of American lives in and around Luxembourg. 5,076 are buried here, including General George Patton (who was killed a month after the war ended in an auto accident in Germany, but wanted to be buried "with his troops"). The cemetery and memorial tells the story of the battle, and... More

A few kilometres from Luxembourg Ville in the US Cemetery. Knowing the relationship that Patton developed with the men under his command, it is moving to see his grave in front of the american soldiers. The cemetery also provides and overview of parts of WWII that is also very interesting and a visitor centre.

American Battle Monument, in the entrance, gilded eagles surmount the stone pillars; Bronze dolphins and turtles decorate the pools, symbolizing Respectively, Resurrection and Everlasting Life. Visitors can sign the guest register in the Visitor Building. Also General Pattons grave is here and overlooking the graves area, and you find a tablet of the over 300 Missing; The aera contains the... More

I spent a week driving around the sights of the battle of the bulge and this was my last stop. It's kept in perfect condition and the American guy working there is really friendly. A must see for military history fans.

I found the visit to this cemetery and memorial very emotional and moving. It's gives one time to reflect and to remember the many Americans who paid the ultimate price during the second world war. General Patton is also buried here. Very sad. Please find time if you're in Luxembourg to visit.

Even though some people might think visiting a cemetery while on holiday is a little morbid we think it is an important part of the history of the country and as we are interested in everything WW2 related, we decided to take the trip. It is a little far but we took a bus and then walked the remaining way.... More

My wife and I had the privilege of visiting this magnificent cemetery and memorial to our fallen soldiers in April. It is every bit as impressive as the other reviewers here state. We attempted to photograph the markers for all 178 soldiers of the 87th Infantry Division (my dad's outfit) to be added to their website. We managed to get... More

When you are in the area, don't forget to visit this Memorial. It is well maintained, peaceful resting place for all the young men who gave their lives so we could enjoy our freedoms. Finding unmarked graves of several hundred young men who couldn't be identified made my heart ache especially for their families. At every corner and every angle,... More
