I visited in March while in the Ramstein-Miesenbach, Germany area. Only about an hour away by car, this is a must do for any American or those interested in WWII or history. There are over 17,000 Americans buried here and I was alone on a Thursday afternoon on a cloudy day. The grounds and grave markers were in pristine condition... More

Visited the American Cemetery yesterday. It is very well maintained and a solemn reminder of the history and sacrifices of men from our country. Well worth a visit to pay our respects to those who gave all.

Had read about this place but to actually go there it is something else. It is vast and it's a very sombre experience really pulls at your heart strings.

We visited this cemetery one frosty early morning and besides a few crows we were the only visitors that time, which underlined the sad but solemn atmosphere of this place. It was very impressive breathtaking experience.

This is an easy place to find just inside France. It is an amazing World War II cemetery with over 10000 American men and women buried here including 5 Medal of Honor winners. There are very few parking spaces and if you don't have a car I'm not sure how you would get here but if you can, I know... More

Absolutely Beautiful. Makes me proud of my country and the sacrifices we once were willing to make. Spend an hour, walk the rows of crosses, contemplate life.

We visited on a cool and rainy October Sunday afternoon. We first entered the memorial chapel, which features maps and descriptions of the battles on the walls and five sculptured figures representing the eternal struggle for freedom. The grounds were immaculate, each of the more than 10,000 headstones showing evidence of the care provided by the staff of this cemetery.... More

During my recent visit to the Lorraine American Cemetery at St. Avold, France, my travel guide and I came across two French high school students who were there on a school project researching the lives of soldiers interred at the Cemetery. This aroused my interest and soon enough I was introduced to their English Teacher, who has led previous projects... More

I was following my father's footsteps through WWII, 80th "Blue Ridge" Division, Patton's 3rd Army. This is quite moving, beautiful, memorable, serene. Many of the 80th Division soldiers are buried here. It covers 113.5 acres and contains 10,489 graves, the largest number of any American World War II cemetery in Europe.
