Visit to the American cemetery in Margraten

Visit the only American war cemetery in the Netherlands and you're bound to be moved by the serenity of this extraordinary place.

Thousands of rows of identical white crosses span endlessly across the green grassy space. It's an impressive and moving sight that evokes a feeling of serenity in stark contrast to the horrors of war.

Each cross represents one American war hero who sacrificed their life fighting for the freedom of the Netherlands during the Second World War. Listen to the touching human stories as told by the guide and learn more about the history of this place.

Don't forget to visit the Ereplein (Square of Honour) with its tower, chapel, lake, and Wall of the Missing.

This activity is also suitable for school trips and can be linked to a specific educational theme on request.
