A beautiful monument/cemetery. I could not believe how well upkept it was. It left a deep impression on my boyfriend and I. As an American, I greatly appreciate this remembrance site. It is a must see.

You have to wander through the graves to appreciate the sacrifice made by so many from so many states. The memorial chapel was under renovation when we were there.

We visited this attraction on the recommendation of one of our hotel staff and we are glad we made the effort to go. The entry statement is quite eye catching with beautifully manicured lawns and gardens to compliment the entry proper. Once you enter the grounds you can feel a certain amount of aura about the place. The memorial and... More

It was deeply moving to walk through the grounds of this World War II cemetery. The only American war cemetery in The Netherlands, it is immaculately maintained and is a fitting tribute to these men who gave their lives for a greater cause.

This is a beautiful cemetery for those who lost their lives in European. The Dutch have not forgotten their sacrifice and a family adopts a grave of a soldier sometimes passing it down from generation to generation. My uncle is buried there and we were fortunate to meet the family who takes care of his grave and really cares about... More

I had never heard of this cemetery, but we were taken here by a local guide who thought we'd like it ... and she was right. It's a lovely, moving location, with thousands of graves well maintained in part by Dutch families who "adopt" one of the plots. The cemetery is nicely laid out, fronted by a peaceful fountain and...
