I went to this church during a visit to Lucerne, it is close to the Chapel Bridge. The church construction started in 1667. The artwork and architecture is impressive, well worth a visit, recommended.

This wonderful church that is in the centre of Lucerne is a wonderful example of its style. Drop in and enjoy the instant quiet, the wonderful architecture, and take a moment to contemplate.

We visited this Jesuit church during our visit to Luzern. Very ornate inside, and elaborate. Free to enter! Located a few minutes from the train station. Would definitely recommend!

I was completely unprepared for the sheer opulence of this church's interior. I have visited many beautiful churches and cathedrals in Europe and elsewhere, but the Jesuitenkirche in Lucerne is on a level all its own. Extraordinary! Where many churches are somber and dark or...More

Jesuitekirche is a beautiful Jesuit church. We were on a group tour and were only allowed to step inside the church due to time constraints. I would love to go back and tour it.
