As you drive into Clervaux from any direction you notice the red coloured Abbey on the hill overlooking the town set deep in the valley. As our housesit was close to here we spent a few days exploring this beautiful town so got to know it’s streets quite well.
Clervaux Chateaux houses some really interesting museums. While we were a bit ‘war museumed’ out and never visited the Museum of the Battle of the Bulge. The reviews say it is really good.
We did spend an hour or so at the Family of Man photography exhibition and thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is a series of photographs taken by a variety of photographers form around the world. The collection was first put together in 1955 and is now permanently housed in Clervaux. The photos are a powerful reflection on how the world was and also showed how the world still is and how some things just never change.
You can drive up to the Abbey St Maurice de Clervaux on the hill or walk if you are keen. It is surrounded by forests and very tranquil. When we went up the Abbey was not open but the building itself is pretty impressive.
Clervaux is just a lovely town to just wander around, beautiful buidlings, colourful window boxes and of course many cafes. Our favourite is the Chocolate one near the Tourist Bureaux. They do good coffee and serve it with a lovely profiterole…
