The collection originated from The Museum of Modern Art (New York) in 1955 and travelled the world round untill 1964. That year it was donated to Luxemburg by the American Government by wish of the creator, Edward J. Steichen. After carefull...more
Clervaux is a small town set in the narrow valley of the river Klierf and surrounded by wood covered hills. The Family of Man, a famous exhibit of photos collected by Edward Steichen, is on permanent display at the Castle of Clervaux. The castle was built in the 12th century. The Clervaux castle now houses the offices of the local government, the...more
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...more
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...more
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,...more
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.more
The valley is majesticaly dominated by the benedictic St. Maurice abbey. The construction goes back to the years 1909, 1910 here you will find an interresting exposition of the customs and sacred rites. The priests of St. Maurice had a life of prayers and seclusion in spirit dictated by the rules of Saint Benedict.more

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.
When you are going to the railway station again on your way back, don't miss nice views nearby river bank. It is nothing that preferable by tourist information offic but it has its own atmosphere what is for me more than just a view...
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...more
