The aim of this account is to present the use and the advantages of different experimental and theoretical methods in the study of the structural and spectroscopic properties of rare earth (RE) oxyfluorides. The structural characterization was carried out with the X-ray and neutron powder diffraction techniques combined with the analysis of the acquired data with the Rietveld profile refinement method. The detailed spectroscopic studies were also used by employing the optical absorption and luminescence as well as inelastic neutron scattering data. Simple spectroscopic measurements gave, however, only qualitative description of the spectroscopic properties studied. More sophisticated and quantitative means was obtained by the application of the phenomenological crystal field theory to the spectroscopic data. On the other hand, the structural data was also used as initial input to electrostatic point charge calculation in order to extract the spectroscopic information. The structural and spectroscopic studies comprised the verification of the exact crystal and energy level structures and the characterization of the different interactions modifying the spectroscopic properties of the RE^{3+} ions. Finally, the results from the theoretical model were used to explain the evolution of the crystal field effect on the 4f^{N} energy level structure of the RE^{3+} ion in the RE oxyfluorides series.
