Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial Reviews
un lieu agréable, une vue magnifique sur paris et même en plein hiver. Un passage obligatoire pour nos adolescents, et une étape dans ma recherche généalogique de la famille. more »a nice place, beautiful view of paris and even in winter. An obligatory passage for our teenagers, and a step in my genealogy research of the family.
Une petite promenade à frémir mais cela vaut le coup surtout pour des jeunes pour des explications .Le site est exceptionnel . more »A short walk to shudder but worth the money especially for youth for explanations. The site is exceptional.
Die Anlage ist nicht nur für geschichtlich interessierte Besucher sehenswert. Sue liegt nicht weit von Paris. Parkplätze sind vorhanden. more »The investment is worth a visit not only for historically interested visitors. Sue is located not far from Paris. Parking is available.
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.
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.
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.
Putting the glory of American soldiers poleglym in Europe during World War I and II
