Clervaux

Overview

Introduction

Clervaux, Luxembourg, is a medieval town set in a deep, narrow valley beside the Clerve River, 38 mi/62 km north of Luxembourg City. Clervaux has a nice 12th-century castle and is the site of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Maurice and St. Maur.

Built in 1910, the abbey has an interesting exhibit on monastic life, and Gregorian chants are performed on Sunday. The castle contains Edward Steichen's noted photo collection, The Family of Man, as well as an eclectic display of Battle of the Bulge memorabilia. The town also has extensive walking trails and an 18-hole golf course.
