Museum of the Battle of the Bulge: Memories of the Liberation
The Battle of the Bulge was one of the biggest and most complex battles of the Second World War. It was as a result of this battle that US General Patton, to whom a monument stands in Ettelbruck, and his Third Army were finally able to free the people of Luxembourg from the German occupation. The museum tells the story of this difficult time and keeps the memory alive of the Americans who liberated the country. Numerous documents, uniforms and weapons from the Battle of the Bulge in the winter of 1944-45 are on display here. The exhibition is in the inner courtyard of the castle.
