The Church of St. Leodegar (German: St. Leodegar im Hof or Hofkirche St. Leodegar) is a Roman Catholic church in the city of Lucerne, Switzerland. It was built in parts from 1633 to 1639 on the foundation of the Roman basilica which had burnt in 1633. This church was one of the few built north of the Alps during the Thirty Years War and one of the largest art history rich churches of the German late renaissance period.
In the 8th century there was already an abbey consecrated to Saint Maurice on the current site of the church, which had been donated by Pepin the Short, and was known at the time as the Monastarium Luciaria. By the 12th century the abbey was under the jurisdiction of the Murbach Abbey, whose patron saint was St. Leodegar.

Very beautiful place. Good accoustics, they sometimes have concerts. A side entrance without steps has a door wide enough for wheelchairs, but someone will have to unlock the bars above the regular, small door from the inside. Only one wheelchair accessible parking. Path to the church is over cobblestone. If calling ahead maybe they would grant access to the church courtyard for driving the car closer to the entrance.

A truly unique tranquility experience and for a Christian Church fairly modestly decorated

Gorgeous Roman Catholic church. Rich with renaissance decorations. Captivating sound of bells from the Church tower. Very clean and preserved place located in the center of Luzern.
