We came across this church during an early morning walk. The interior is stunning, with magnificent glass windows and art work. I'm not particularly religious but I was awestruck by the great beauty of this church and found it to be a place of serenity...More

A very short walk from the bahnhof, the church is located on the water by the Kappelbrucke. You'd be remiss to overlook this beautiful and ornate church. Check schedule if you're interested in attending service.

This church is a quick few steps from the chapel bridge and worth the stroll. It has a gorgeous interior. Admittedly, I snuck in during a service, but it was worth it!

This is fairly understated for a baroque church. There are some well-done faux marble effects. From the view of the organ, it would be an excellent place for a concert. During the day, you can enjoy fairly quite contemplation.

We stopped in the church during our walking tour and our guide said it was recently renovated. I honestly cannot remember the Jesuit history of the church but remember thinking at the time it was interesting. Just a stunning interior and worth a stop in.
