  • Beautifully well kept, quiet and thought-provoking. I was there for 15 minutes, walking between the rows, but I hardly saw anyone else. There is room to park.  more »
  • After the airborne Museum also visited the cemetery. You must have been there to see how beautiful, but also impressive this is. The fact that here people are lying who have fought for our freedom.. Respect.

  • If you're looking at the history of operation Market Garden then you need to visit this war cemetery. This brings all the information in the museums together. At the end of it all it's about the young lives from around the globe and from different beliefs that were lost. I war there are no winners, just losers.
  • A well tended cemetery that is starkly handsome but especially affecting when one realizes the obvious: nearly all the grave markers commemorate people born during the early twentieth century and who never saw the middle of the century. Such is war, and silence comes without saying.
