Located just a stone’s throw away from our hotel, the Saint-Maurice Abbey stands tall above the town of Clervaux in the north of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Its construction is a testament to the wisdom of ancient builders and dates back to the 20th century.

Designed by J. Klomp, a Dutch architect who worked mainly in Germany, the abbey was primarily built in 1909-1910 in a neo-Romanesque style. The use of shale extracted from the site gives the buildings a warm and natural appearance, which blends perfectly with the surrounding countryside. The red-tiled roofs and the octagonal tower, inspired by the Holy Water tower of the former Abbey of Cluny, add to its impressive appearance.

As you explore the abbey, marvel at its majestic architecture as it towers high above the town. Watch the monks attend choral prayer seven times a day under the direction of the abbot. In the crypt, you can find a fascinating photographic exhibition on the life and work of the Benedictines. The gift shop offers a wide selection of books and art objects to suit all tastes. If you’re an early riser, don’t miss the morning Mass every day at 10:00 am.

During your stay at Hotel du Moulin d’Asselborn, immerse yourself in the peaceful and spiritual atmosphere of the abbey. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
