The American Military Cemetery outside Luxembourg city is a "must-see" for any visiting American and recommended for anyone else. It is an impressive site and the burial place of General Patton. If you are there, you should also go to the German Military Cemetery 2...More

We visited here on our recent trip to Luxembourg. My fiancé is American so I thought it would be of interest to him. The grounds are beautifully kept and it is like walking into the US with the flags and way it is laid out....More

We arrived shortly after 5 pm to find it closed. A guard said to wait and he got the director, who gave us a guided tour. I was particularly interested in the 101 AB, would not have found that area on my own.

Just as you may have experienced in Normandy, this brings home the sacrifices made during WWII to keep our country safe.

This site is very well looked and maintained. Despite realistically being a cemetery, there are several monuments detailing how the various armies/regiments progressed through Europe during WW2. It was both an inspiring and moving experience, allowing you to appreciate the ultimate sacrifice these brave men/women...More

Not really a question. Just read a review where someone had written that the staff in the Visitor's Center were ambivalent. I found the exact opposite. My wife an I walked in and the young lady there could not have been more welcoming. She was more than happy to answer any and all questions and had the nicest demeanor. Just wanted to add my two cents without writing a second review. All the best to you.

I don't know exactly where Section H is located within the cemetery but from Patton's grave you can walk to anywhere in the cemetery in under 5-10 minutes.
