Museums in the Castle of Clervaux

Das Museum zur Ardennenoffensive, das Museum der Modelle der Burgen und Schlösser Luxemburgs sowie die Fotoausstellung The Family of Man sind im Schloss von Clervaux untergebracht.

Museum of the Battle of the Bulge

The Museum of the Battle of the Bulge in Clervaux Castle illustrates this historic battle through documents, uniforms and authentic weapons. Clervaux is the heart of the Luxembourg Ardennes and therefore part of areas which particularly suffered during the Second World War. The Battle of the Bulge, in winter 1944/45, was the last attempt of the Third Reich to nullify the allied forces of the West. After the failure of the attack, Luxembourg again became a free country. The Museum of the Battle of the Bulgeremembers this obscure but highly decisive period of the last century.

Museum of Models of Luxembourg Castles

The Museum of Models of Luxembourg Castles is also installed inside the medieval castle of Clervaux. The collection emphasizes the importance of the City of Luxemburg as a fortified city, still known as the "Gibraltar of the North". With a wide variety of information in audio form and imagery, the fascinating world of the Middle Ages opens up to visitors, big and small. Castles are true witnesses of ancient times and are a reminder of the emerging power and symbolic representation of the kings, princes, counts and dukes in their time.

Photographic exposition The Family of Man

The Family of Man is the greatest photographic exhibition of all time, permanently installed in Clervaux Castle since 1994. Several hundred photographs represent an overall picture of humanity. They speak of love and birth, faith in humanity, work and family, war and peace. The aim of The Family of Man exhibition is, or rather was, to act as a lasting symbol as to the hope for agreement between different peoples. The installation was admitted in the list of UNESCO World Documentary Heritage sites.
