American Cemetery and Memorial on Mont Valérien in Suresnes
Beautiful and moving, the cemetery’s chapel is the focal point for paying homage to over 1500 American servicemen and women who died in the Paris area during WWI. The American superintendent will be happy to answer our questions and tell us about the most interesting features and stories.
There is a panoramic view over Paris from the plateau across the street, and French memorials to their WWII fallen heroes around the hillside, too.
To reach the site via public transport, take a train from Gare St. Lazare to the Suresnes-Mont Valérien station (a 15- to 20-minute trip) and then walk ten minutes to the front gate. The site is also served by bus from some Paris neighborhoods, such as Auteuil.
A 15/20 minute break will be included during this walk.
Please come prepared for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
