  • 1 soothing calm, ordered, maintained American cemetery. The dates of the after first world war graves. Visitors will remember that there is a health camp instead of the Saint-Cloud Racecourse. The end of the war so and also the Spanish flu. Which may explain the dates on the graves (1919, etc...). It's a good way to explain the story to children. See a fall day or a nice summer day.

  • This place is amazing, you can see still better the Mont Valérien on! I do my workouts and me y collects always a moment before leaving

  • A quite surprising place on a slope of Mt Valérien. Perfect place for a small concrete history lesson, or simply to collect himself. Leaving, panoramic view over Paris from the terrace of the Fecheray

  • The place is a tangible memory of the 2 more destructive wars of the XX century. Probably the most terrible man made events in the whole written history of mankind. Today is a peaceful reminder of the mistakes to not commit again. Always quiet and next to the Mont Valerian fort it has an amazing view of Paris looking south. A short and pintoresque walk from T2 Suresnes station is a good alternative to see Paris from the banlieue : just 20 minutes from downtown Paris. You can also walk around Mont Valerian and visit the French memorial of the Second World War, have a picnic in the park south the cemetery, and continue your journey to the west to Parc the Saint Cloud and Museum of Ceramic in Sèvres.
  • The Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triumph are indeed incredible sites. But the experience is not so great because of the long lines, crowds, and people trying to hawk you post cards and mini Eiffel Towers. The American Cemetery in Suresnes has none of that. I spent 45 minutes there and I saw one other person. It is an emotional, worthwhile visit. The names and the States makes it personal. You feel sorry in a way because you know that everyone of them (and there are a number of women because Surnames was a hospital site, not a battle), they all just wanted to go home. Sad. The cemetery and monuments are impeccable and it overlooks Paris. Not so bad in that respect. Still not a first choice for the men and women who gave their lives for peace.
  • Inspiring and hallowed ground. Mainly WW I graves for US soldiers. Very quiet and nobody else on the grounds but us when we visited. You could hear the flags (French and US) flapping in the breeze. Very easy to get to by taxi or train (not the Metro, but runs the same). 5 min trip from La Defense Metro station. Open every day but Christmas and NYD.
  • Ok
  • Great places of commemoration and the lawn always prune at mm
