Trip Planner: Europe / Belgium / Wallonia / The Ardennes / Luxembourg Province / Bastogne / Mardasson Memorial
Distinctive for its pentagram shape and its interior gallery, Mardasson Memorial commemorates the over 76,000 American soldiers who fell in the Battle of the Bulge. Go inside the atrium to see 10 paintings that depict the battle; around the exterior you'll see engravings of the names of the 50 U.S. states and the battalions that fought in the battle. The Latin inscription on the memorial stone translates as, "The Belgian people remember their American liberators--July 4, 1946." Walk down into the crypt below the memorial to see three altars, each representing a prominent religion in the battalions: Protestant, Catholic, and Judaism. Consider a visit to the history museum near the memorial to learn more about the World War II era.

Mardasson Memorial Reviews
Bijzonder groot monument. Erg mooi gedaan, je kan ook naar boven om het vanaf boven te zien en van het uitzicht genieten. Sfeervol gedaan more »Particularly large monument. Very nicely done, you can also go upstairs to see it from above and enjoy the view. Attractively done
Great monument to visit. You don't need to spend to much time here. It was convenient there was a restaurant on premise to grab some food real quick more »
Fantastic 360 views of the battle areas. Informative maps on each section of the star details approach and movement of German and US forces. Memorial to the list brave US military. Separated by states with a crypt in the rear lower quarter. Chimes at hourly times. The must see popular sight when in the area.
This monument is actually massive and has outstanding views from the top with directional maps that display the events of the battle of the bulge. Well worth a look. Free parking and access.
