Saint Michael's Church (Luxembourgish: Méchelskierch, French: Église Saint-Michel, German: Sankt Michaelskirche) is a Roman Catholic church in Luxembourg City, in southern Luxembourg. It is located in Fishmarket, in the central Ville Haute quarter.
The church is the oldest extant religious site in Luxembourg City. The first church was built on the spot in 987 as the castle chapel for the Count of Luxembourg. However, over the following centuries, the building was destroyed, rebuilt, and renovated several times. Its current appearance dates to 1688, and unites Romanesque and Baroque architectural styles, pre-dating the national Moselle Baroque style. The building has been restored since then, preserving its original form; it has most recently been renovated in the 1960s, 1980s, and 2003–2004.

One of the oldest church in Luxembourg in one of the oldest area there... It is quiet and peaceful... We prayed there and discovered this old and beautiful and small church in Luxembourg.... You can notice from the walls, the statues and the icons that it is very old but well preserved... It is a must see when you visit Luxembourg city... It is highly recommended...

Another beautiful, though somewhat smaller, catholic church. Very quiet and peaceful, even on St Mary's day.
