Henri Chapelle American Cemetery Tours

3 reviews
Belgium’s 57-acre Henri Chapelle American Cemetery serves as the final resting place for 7,992 servicemen and women, most of who died during two major efforts of World War II. Henri Chapelle also served as a temporary cemetery for American war dead toward the end of the war, and the first remains returned to the United States for burial left from here.

Rows of headstones lay in an arc patterns extend across the gently sloping lawn. An overlook on the western side of the cemetery offers sweeping views over a former battlefield, and on the east lies a colonnade with a chapel and map room. Inside the map room, visitors will find two military operations maps carved into black granite. Outside, the names of 450 missing soldiers are inscribed into the colonnade pillars.

Practical Info

The cemetery is located about 2 miles (3 kilometers) northwest of Henri-Chapelle village near the German border.
