So glad I went in to see this church. A work of art and so peaceful. There is beauty all around. Pictures do it no justice.

Easy to find - close to the station and old town. Spectacular ceiling and altar - murals and marble stonework - but look for the carved wooden features - pulpits.

I have been in many churches throughout Europe and this is equal in beauty to many. There are often masses so you may need to adjust visit times. Worth you time to visit as it is very close to the Chapel Bridge

I haven't seen many baroque style interiors in churches, but this one definitely fits that category. It is a rather clean example of baroque, and is not visually busy. Very pleasant, and I can envision worship there to be quite spiritual.

My wife and I have travelled extensively throughout Europe over the last fifteen years. We've see a lot of churches/cathedrals! This one was exceptional, leaving us with a sense of beauty and peace. Lucerne is a small town. Don't miss this.

This had to be one of the prettiest churches we'd seen in all of Switzerland. The view down the main aisle alone was amazing. And all the painting and gold-impressed statues only added to the overall impression. A very amazing place.

Very easy to see from anywhere by the river, it's a beautiful baroque style church right by the reussbrucke bridge, be sure to enter and check out the inside, it's even more gobsmacking inside. Stunning interior and a peaceful place to collect your thoughts.
