The Luxembourg American Cemetery and Memorial is an American military cemetery located in Luxembourg-Hamm. It is administered by the American Battle Monuments Commission.

The cemetery was established on December 29, 1944 by the 609th Quartermaster Company of the U.S. 3rd Army as Allied forces halted the offensive in the Ardennes.

By an American-Luxembourg treaty, signed in 1951, the land was made available to the US government in perpetuity.

The cemetery contains the graves of 5,076 American soldiers. Most of these soldiers died in the Battle of the Bulge between winter 1944 and spring 1945.
Between the two masts is the grave of General George S. Patton.
