“Baroque splendour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013 via mobile

Being Catholic we had to visit this baroque masterpiece while in Lucerne. Perfect apart from the near-obligatory vernacular table-altar that has ruined the sanctuary of many a fine church. Caught the end of an organ recital which sent shivers down the spine! Lovely pastel colour scheme throughout and interesting side altars. And of course it was all free! Highly recommended.

“light and airy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Beautiful and rather different church...light, airy in pinks and whites unlike a lot of the heavier wooden styles displayed in other churches and cathedrals. The music (piped?) also added pleasantly to the general ambience.

“GOOD ARCHITECTURE, BEAUTIFUL INSIDE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Jesuitenkirche of Lucern, reminds me a lot the churches i saw in Austria, especially the decoration and inside colours. Is beautiful , peaceful and ofcourse when seen from the lake is wonderfull.The wooden old bridge takes you directly in front of the church.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Great architecture. Calming experience. Walk just a couple of hundred meters from the Chapel Bridge, open the door and you enter an oasis.

“Church of Lucerne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013

This Church was amazing when it comes to architecture and needs to be on anyone bucket list, when you are in Lucerne. Every church we see in Europe will leave you thinking on how did they build such a magnificent structure?
