This is a must in Luxembourg. If you are fan of history, then you should absolutely visit this cemetery. It is weird to say, that it is beautiful, but that is just what it is. A beautiful tribute to the soldiers who lost their life...More

A must, especially if you're an American visiting Luxembourg. Truly respectful and made with taste and class, although not all Americans know about this place it's something to be proud of. Burial place of general Patton.

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.

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.
