We visited Henri-Chapelle 10 years ago, and it was one of the highlights of our trip. My grandfather is buried there, and we were able to see his grave. The cemetery officials truly go out of their way to make visits meaningful to family members, so if you have a loved one buried here, do let them know ahead of time that you're coming. The train doesn't go directly into the town of Henri-Chapelle; we had to go from Liege to Welkenraedt, where a cemetery staffer picked us up and drove us the rest of the way. On our return trip, the cemetery superintendent drove us back to the Welkenraedt station (10-15 min.) and we had a nice chat!
Even if you don't have a loved one who rests at Henri-Chapelle, it's worth seeing just for the quiet beauty. If you look at the gravestones one way, you'll see perfectly straight lines. Look from another angle, and you'll see graceful, curving arcs. It's design at its best. I highly recommend a visit to this gorgeous place, away from the hustle and bustle of big European tourist attractions.
