I think every American should stop at any American cemetery in any country. The Superintendent was very informative. Beautiful plus the whole valley across the road.

This is a very moving place where thousands of American military heroes from WW2 have found their last resting place. Good to visit this cemetry from time to time in order not to forget.

Located at a high point in the very beautiful countryside. Immaculately maintained place of solitude to show honor and respect for the service these soldiers provided.

This is a beautiful cemetary. It is a very moving place and I urge you to visit. If you have a loved one there graves are easy to find. On one was there to help us find the grave and we were able to fine it on our own.

If you are within travelling distance of the cemetery, you should go. It is powerful, very well put together and maintained and simply soul-stirring. The staff speaks English, French and German. They helped me understand the history of the cemetery as well as the battles that led to those Soldiers being buried there. They also assisted me in getting a... More

I visited both Margraten and Henri-Chapelle last weekend. Both are proper burial sites. I find it a pity that the ages of the soldiers cannot be inferred, since the birth dates are not mentioned. One nice thing about Henri-Chapelle is that some of the graves are highlighted with flags and accompanied by a story surrounding the death of the soldier... More

When American soldiers were making their final push towards the German border during WW II and in the process of liberating Belgium, the local Belgians housed many of them in their homes, only to see the same soldiers making the final sacrifice perhaps the very next day. In gratitude for giving their lives for them, the local people brought flowers... More

We volunteered to assist in Memorial Day 2016 setup. We placed a rose at over 900 graves of fallen American soldiers. When finished, we were able to witness a ceremony for families that had traveled from the US to visit a family member. The Belgian Forces provided a uniformed detail, and a piper played Amazing Grace. What an amazingly touching... More

As with other American cemeteries overseas, a visit to Henri-Chapelle is so moving. The grounds are immaculate and the marble headstones spanning the grounds are a reminder of the sacrifices that have been made for our country. Everyone, especially every American, should visit a military cemetery and reflect upon our country's history.

there are no words to describe the feeling - I did a review of the Aachen Cathedral and didn't mention in and I wish I could do a revision on my review , Ugh - anyway - we were visiting Aachen and in searching the area realized Henri Chapelle was only 10 minutes away over the border - so glad...
