Luxembourg part 7 - Small Town Clervaux

Clervaux - Luxembourg 11/12 (HD)
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 reception of the "Syndicat d'Initiative" (local Tourist Office), a collection of models of Luxembourg's old fortified castles, and a small war museum exhibiting weapons and souvenirs from the 1944-1945 Ardennes offensive (Battle of the Bulge).

Several walking trails have origin and end in or near Clervaux.
