Clervaux is a commune and town in northern Luxembourg, administrative capital of the canton of Clervaux. The town`s arms, granted in 1896, show three blackbirds on a gold ground in the chief of a red shield, as a variation of the arms of the former Lords of Clervaux. As of 2015, the town of Clervaux, which lies in the south-west of the commune, has a population of 1,309. The city was the site of heavy fighting during World War II, in the December 1944 Battle of Clervaux, part of the `Battle of the Bulge`. The Family of Man, a famous exhibit of photos collected by Edward Steichen, is on permanent display in Clervaux Castle. The castle also includes the Battle of the Bulge Museum, with an extensive collection of American, German and Luxembourgish artifacts from World War II, and an exhibition of models of the castles and palaces of Luxembourg. A U.S. Sherman tank that participated in the battle for Clervaux and a German 88 anti-aircraft/anti-tank artillery piece are on display in front of the castle. The town is also home to a parish church, built between 1910 and 1912 in the Rheinisch-Romanesque style. We visited Clervaux with its castle and parish church in the summer of 2020.
