It's a big cemetery from World War 2. General Patton and some other high ranking people are buried there. It's sad but also in a way happy as the men died for a cause of saving others.

When one enters the cemetery, one gets a feeling of awe and admiration for the valour and bravery of the soldiers that laid down their lives in WW II. The graves are alphabetically and precisely marked and easy for those travelling from far and wide to locate their loved ones. It is a peaceful yet memorable experience.

I would highly recommend coming here. From memory I took the number 20 bus (2 euros per journey or can spend 4 euros for an all day ticket) and walked about 10 minutes to get there. It's free entry which is generous as I would have paid a few euros to enter. I picked up a leaflet which suggested a... More

Hard to describe what one feels when visiting a place of worship. When you go here you know what to expect. Ample visiting hours and a beautiful place where to pay the due respect to those who gave their lives to bring peace to this world. A lovely chapel to pray and a well explained map of the battles and... More

It' s not the biggest American Cemitery in Europe! Neither the most beautiful, as the one in Normandy! But it is certainly very impressive and emotive, mainly because of the tomb of the General George Patton, the comander of US Army in France and Germany after the allied invasion on the D-day. What really called my atention was the simplicity... More

It never fails to amaze me how beautiful and tranquil these cemeteries are. I could spend hours looking round and paying my respects to those that lie within the grounds.

I was here the first time aged 4, and this first impression never left me. Hundreds and hundreds of white crosses, huge, and so very sad. To each of these crosses there is a life gone, a sad story, the eternal reminder of war.

A visit to Luxembourg or the neighbouring area must include a visit to the Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial. Beautifully maintained and laid out it is a reminder to us all of the ultimate sacrifice paid by so many in WWII. The grave of General Patten is also contained here.
