We and several others walked up to the door and tried with no success to enter - really disappointed... Not sure what the timeline is for this church's renovations to be completed..it's free when you can enter..

Looks like it will be closed for renovation rest of 2016 which is a great shame as it is a beautiful church. Quite a lot of baroque bling going on but manages to look beautiful rather than ott. Went to mass here last year and at the end of mass the organist performed what in effect was a mini recital... More

Unfortunately it is difficult to find information in English about the fact that this church is closed during 2016 for some major renovations. You are now warned: don't put it on your itinerary. However, the Franciscan church located just around the corner is wort a visit instead; in fact, it is much older than the Jesuit church and interesting in... More

The church was under renovation so we were not able to see it as it probably deserves, however what we did see clearly warrants coming back when where are in Luzern again.

very historic, gorgeous church, if you are catholic, you will love going here ... we took a taxi here and the taxi driver kept referring to it as the Jewish Church, so we had some laughs at that, but we enjoyed it just the same ... traveling on a hot day, it is cool and quiet inside and i understand...

I love visiting this church, right at the foot of the Chapel Bridge in Lucerne. It's so light and beautiful, ornate without being over the top. When we visited in June 2016, we were unable to go inside this time due to construction going on. If you're in Lucerne, take the time to pop inside and have a look. You... More

One of the most ordanary from the inside , but as with us , it is what is inside that matters. Once you have walked through the old town , this is a perfect place to stop and catch your breath in the righ place

As I had been here on a previous visit, I was disappointed to find it was closed for renovations. As photos show, it has spectacular Baroque interior - but you can't get in!

I loved walking by this church every day on the way to and from the hotel. If you find yourself in Lucerne, walk across a bridge to the other side of the river, order a glass of wine at an outdoor spot, relax and chat with your friends, then aim your camera at the church as darkness falls.
