The Clervaux castle now houses the offices of the local government, the...

  • Abbaye Saint Maurice et Saint Maur

    The abbey sits on a hill above the city surrounded by forest. Instead of driving, walk from the the Église de Clervaux. It is a nice walk through the woods. Along the way you will pass the Souvenir de Klëppelkrich. The monument sits just outside the walls of the abbey. Unfortunantly, there is a sign for no photography inside the abbey. During our...

  • Église de Clervaux

    The church was built in the beginning of the 20th century. Go inside! Outside above the entryways there are nice tiled mosaics and a large one above the alter.

  • Benedictine Abbey

    The Benedictine Abbey of Saint Maurice and St.Maur, built in 1910 in Romanesque-burgundian style, dominates the valley and the city of Clervaux. It’s a short drive from the city centre. Unfortunately when you first see it from afar you get a strong impression of the Abbey, but as soon as you visit it you realize that it’s just a 20th century...

  • Photo exhibition “The family of man”

    This is a very sentimental photo collection housed in the feudal castle upon the city of Clervaux. Though I like taking pictures I seldom visit photo collections, but while this one is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, I thought it deserved a glance. And how lucky I was to follow my instinct.This is one of the largest photo exhibitions,...

  • Family of Man

    Clervaux Castle houses the biggest foto-exposition of all times. This exposition is made by Edward Steichen and has travelled all over the world. Now it has a permanent place in Clervaux Castle and certainly is worth a visit.

  • Clervaux Abbey Church

    This not that much decorated church is really a place where people should relax a bit. If you are lucky someone will play the organ what makes such special atmosphere you wouldn't go away, doesn't matter if you believe in God or not. Everything is arranged in non-forcible way.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Going by train is very easy. Just jump to the first train going in the direction to the North of Luxembourg and then after an hour of watching great countryside you are there.
    The railway station is a bit off the center so you will need to walk around 10 minutes to reach it.

    The good advice is that you should buy a ticket for tourists (Luxembourg transport card) that is valid for one, two or more days, depends on you, and you should go wherever you want just showing this card. It allows you also to enter all exhibitions in the list for free. One day card costs around 9 Eur.
