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.
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 Saint-Maurice and Saint Maur Abbey is situated close to the town of Clervaux. Notable associations include Halldór Laxness, 1902–1998, the Nobel Prize-winning Icelandic writer, who converted to Roman Catholicism while visiting the Abbey. A Roman Catholic mission to Scandinavia has for many years maintained a base at the Abbey.
