Memorial Site Schumann's Eck - Luxembourg's most destructive battles

During the Battle of the Bulge, the "Schumann's Eck" was a strategically important road junction, which unfortunately became one of the cruellest battlefields in Luxembourg.

The "National Liberation Memorial" commemorates the thousands of soldiers that died in this battle. Another memorial called Massegraf (mass grave) is located on the spot where more than 160 German and some American soldiers were temporarily buried. 

A memorial trail of 3 kilometres leads through the forest past old, partly reconstructed trenches. Life-size historical photos of American and German soldiers as well as Luxembourg civilians at various stations illustrate the events of that time.
