Chateau-Thierry Monument reviews
So quiet. Hardly anyone there which made it very peaceful. Unfortunately the visitors centre was closed as it is following American not French guidance for COVID. Easy to get to and impressive.

While the monument is impressive, the visitor center/museum is the treasure on this stop. It provides excellent descriptions of what happened in this area during the Great War. Plan at least an hour..... more

What an awesome monument! A fitting tribute to those that made the ultimate sacrifice. Spectacular view & a nice little gallery inside. Well worth a visit.
Magnificent memorial to the men of the American Divisions who helped halt the last major German offensive on the Western Front during the Great War and then participated in a counter offensive alongside their French allies. The memorial is situated in an imposing position on Hill 204 overlooking and to the west of Chateau-Thierry. There is a small but interesting museum which is free to visit in the base of the monument on the right hand side as you look at the monument from the car park side.
