Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Very interesting site. All US states that had people who died here at the Battle of the Bulge are represented. Worth a quick visit as you see the other sites here in Bastogne.

  • Great site to visit. The shape of the building is a Star with all 50 States inscribed on it. The view from the roof is amazing
