  • The monument is located at the foot of the Memorial 1st US Infantry Division Omaha Beach, just at 20 meters. The monument itself is quite massive. The view to 180º on Omaha Beach is superb. Free parking at 200 m.

  • It is a place that could be missed, but with a person who explains the history of this place, it becomes very interesting and moving.

  • Impressive location to visit. Many of the bunkers are still intact and can be freely explored. For such a beautiful beach, it is sad to think of the hardships encountered here for our liberty. There's no museum or anything but there is a monument to the engineering corps. We stopped over on a business trip and unfortunately didn't have time to visit the official museum further south. Guess I'll need to come back! The beach itself was practically deserted and a refreshing swim on a hot day is recommended.
  • A wonderful afternoon
  • Never forget
  • A breathtaking view of Omaha Beach from this monument

  • Beautiful Place at Omaha Beach. Impressive to realize what has been playing here in June 1944. Definitely worth a walk here. You can walk from the parking lot at HETs Trand (downstairs) or from the parking lot at the military cemetery (above). Wheelchair access is also available From above.
