CWGC cemeteries are always moving and this one with so many graves from the same action when the Paras tried to hold the bridge is perhaps one of the most poignant. The services the dutch hold here every year are a very moving and an example to we British in how to pass onto our children the importance of remembering.

I went on an extremely quiet day in October. It was sunny but windy and the sounds of the leaves and trees was all there was. The grass is perfect. The surrounding fields are perfect. It is an amazing memorial cemetery and from above in the sky looks like a large cross. This is a perfect little piece of Holland... More

Called in on a very rainy day. Somber place but worth the trip. Help you get things into perspective. Helpful grave guide if you are looking for a relative. Well kept with lots of parking

Most of the soldiers fallen in the battle for Arnhem and resting here. Mainly British and Polish soldiers. After seeing the Airborne museum close by, this round of your market garden experience. So sad to see so many young men died. They had their whole life in front of them... But they died for the freedom of Europe today.

Truly one of the places that I visit on every occasion when nearby at Arnhem or Nijmegen. The site is kept impeccably and should be a must see visitor attraction. My only complaint, not of the cemetery but of a group of visitors that I had to talk to. This is a cemetery so show respect, don't sit on the... More

Deeply moving place. By coincidence I was there at the same time as a party of troops from 3 Para laying a wreath and that made it even more atmospheric. These men resting here truly did 'give their tomorrows for our today' and it's an important place to visit and view life from that perspective - especially in the light... More

A visit to a war cemetery always makes me humble. To realise that all those young people gave their lives to enable us to live in peace for more than seventy years now, fills me with awe. It is a peaceful place. Every year the people of Oosterbeek commemorate the battle with the remaining veterans. Impressive. Good place to dwell... More

Went to visit my uncle's grave. Very well maintained and so very peaceful. It was exactly what I expected from looking online. Could have done without the water sprinklers being on - had to do a bit of jumping around the grave to avoid being drowned. Walked all around and couldn't find any directions to a visitor centre - bit... More

Beautifully maintained - in a peaceful setting - heartbreaking when you see that they were just boys.

When you arrive here at this cemetery and you see all those young men you will immediately be silent. It is so impressive that you feel humble, sad and free at the same time. All those men from abroad who gave their lives for out freedom. I went there with my my wife, three children and their friends to pass... More
