Beautiful example of a Baroque church. The first large Baroque church north of the Alps started by the Jesuits in Catholic Switzerland. It was begun in 1673, consecrated in 1677, but not completed until 1893. Inside and out it is pleasingly different from the Gothic/Norman cathedrals seen across Europe.
I took this photo for the bridge near the Church. It’s very beautiful!
It is a very beautiful church to visit when you are in Luzern.
What a surprise! The outside of the church looks very plain and simple. The inside is another story. Definitely worth stopping to take a look. Gorgeous!
Looking at this very beautiful simple yet elegant facade from across the river (in the restaurant of the Hotel des Balances) was very pleasant. I really liked the subdued elegance of this church.
First large Catholic baroque church built in the north of Switzerland. Beautiful!
Very nice church to sit inside after walking around Lucerne
Exquisite baroque art and architecture. A place of great historical value and spiritual significance. Located within walking distance of the Chapel Bridge, linking it to the other side of Lucerne.
Beautiful church. Mass is not in English, but we enjoyed the German! Beautiful organ as well
Hidden behind the green wood doors, a moment of calm and peace away from the world outside
