Vintage plate 2018

Erigée from 1908 to 1910 by the Dutch architect JF Klomp, this beautiful Benedictine abbey, in retreat and on the heights of the city, is visible several kilometers on the round.

Monks lead a life of prayer and retribution according to the rule of Saint Benedict.

The Abbey is neo-Gothic style and, unlike the other buildings in the city that it overlooks, its buildings are not covered with Ardennese slate but red tiles.

If a visit to the site remains limited, the crypt on the left of the main entrance can be easily accessed, with an interesting exhibition on monacal life.

Home for spiritual pensions (men only are housed in Abbey), stage house for groups in an outdoor building. Shop, including sale of coffee and apple juice produced at the abbey, and sacred art bookstore.

Suggestion of itinerary. If arriving here by car is relatively easy, the most interesting is to go through the abbey (about 800 m uphill), which can be reached from the Sainte-Come Church and Saint-Damien in downtown.

Chouette balade entre Clervaux centre et l'Abbaye
Une agréable balade de +-1.5km entre le Château de Clervaux et l'Abbaye de Clervaux.
Vente de produits de l'Abbaye (artisanat et jus de pommes). Visite gratuite et libre sur la vie monastique (l'exposition mériterait d'être modernisée mais intéressante malgré tout).
Bâtiment magnifique!
