Take a glance at the photos that earlier reviewers have posted of the inside of this small cathedral ,and you will see why it is worth a stop. This is a beautiful, bright serene cathedral, one of the prettiest i have seen.

I love the simplicity of the church unlike many elaborate churches around Europe. That should be a place for prayers and for one to calm their minds.

Beautiful old church. Don't go there during a mass if possible since it can be distracting to the congretation who are not always tolerant of visitors.

Located in the old town of Lucerne, this church is close by the Chapel Bridge and most definitely worth a visit. Decorated in the Baroque style, the interior part of the church is very impressive. Don't let the outside fool you. Once inside, you'll be glad you came.

Watched a choir sing here and the sound was amazing, huge church, and wonderful details. Pull open the giant wood doors to reveal the space inside. A working catholic church as well, in case you want to catch a mass on sunday.

One of the few churches in Switzerland that we visited where you're allowed to take pictures of the interior.

Impressive baroque building with unusual marble interior is the most visited church in Lucerne. Why not drop by when you're already here as it's open all public.

A beautiful baroque church on the riverside close to the covered bridge. The interior is tranquil and peaceful.

it's just orindary church and architect itself is better than interior decoration and setting of the church. Nothing much special worth seeing but we just encounter a wedding and photo shooting, which makes the visit a bit more interesting.
