We peeked in the door as service was about to start. Nice and bright - refreshing after seeing all the old dark Catholic churches in Poland in our previous travel. Surprised to find this in reformed Switzerland.

The church is really beautiful and the architectural design was awesome. We are so lucky that are visit was greeted by a music coming from the grand organ.

In addition to St. Leodegar in Hof, the Jesuit Church is a must see when visiting Lucerne. Construction of this church commenced in the mid-1600s and was not completed until 1893. The interior of this church is stunningly beautiful. Photographs are permitted.

This old church is truly beautiful. You can see a fine craftsmanship all around the church. The paintings on the ceilings are awesome too. We were lucky the mass was about to start when we came, so we can attend as well.

Not the most famous, but a nice church. Right near the Chapel bridge and easy to walk to on the Reus river. Try it.
