Welcome to Clervaux


In the heart of the Ardennes Mountain region about 30 miles (50km) north of Luxembourg City, the village of Clervaux is overlooked by a 15th-century castle, a Romanesque church with twin spires, and a large Benedictine monastery. The castle houses three small museums, including one that features a collection of World War II memorabilia from the Battle of the Bulge that was fought in the region. Another room is dedicated to the Luxembourg Holocaust victims, its walls lined with mementoes of Luxembourgers who died in concentration camps. Behind the castle a road leads uphill to the monastery, where the monks sometimes hold Gregorian chant concerts. The town itself has numerous appealing restaurants and cafes.
