Travel Tips for Clervaux
I didn't catch the meaning of the sign for tourist information office. If there is a witch sitting inside or every tourist is a witch for locals. :) However, it is really nice and people usually get a smile over there. Tourist information office is situated in the Castle of Clervaux.
Parish Church was built up around 1910 as well as the Abbey. However it is decorated by mosaics and fragments that can confuse you when guessing the age of it. It stands nearby the Castle of Clervaux and on the half way to the Abbey.
Center of Clervaux
There is a lot of angles you can make a photo of the city center but most of tourists prefer the view from the Castle or Church. You can catch the special atmosphere of the square where people are sitting on the benches and enjoy talking with friends, kids are playing around and you are just suspiciously searching for the camera because the scene is like from old movie.
Clervaux is a city of 1850 inhabitants situated in adeep and narrow valley in the north of the country, in Ardennes region, beside the river Clerve.
In the neighborhood the is a romanesque impressive church, plus the charming setting and the buildings of the town itself.
Most interesting sites include: The Benedictine Abbey of Saint Maurice and St.Maur, built in 1910 but mainly the feudal castle in the heart of the city which houses several exhibitions of which the photo exhibition “the Family of Man” ranks among the World Heritage of UNESCO.
This small town (pop. 1,000), located in a deep and narrow valley along the river Clerve in the heart of the Ardennes, is one of Luxembourg's most popular tourist destinations. The #1 attraction is the feudal castle (built in the 12th century by Gerhard von Sponheim, the first known lord of Clervaux) which features an exhibition of models of ancient Luxembourg castles and Family of Man, a collection of photographs by the famous American photographer Edward Steichen (who was born in Luxembourg). The castle was destroyed during the Battle of the Bulge (1944) but has been restored to its pre-war condition.
Another major attraction is the Benedictine Abbey of St. Maurice, built in 1910 in Romanesque-Burgundian style. It is situated on a hill overlooking the valley and has an exhibition focusing on the lifestyle of the Benedictine monks.
