I never tire of walking up to this church. It has a long history and the beauty is there, too. A great place to visit when in old town Lucerne.
During our stay in Lucerne our tour guide took us to this historic church, located just off the busy streets of Lake Lucerne. European churches have this ambiance that make you feel calm & relaxed during your visit. We must all remember that modern construction equipment was not used to build these beautiful structures.
The interior of the church was much more impressive then I would have expected. It's location is near the old town so it's easy to get to, although there are a serious number of steps if coming from the lake. Highly recommended in a town that may be a little bit lighter then normal on large scale attractions.
So, The Rough Guide advises...and to this layperson, it certainly lacks the Baroque accretions of many churches in central Europe. There are regular organ concerts and, judging by the size of the instrument, the interior would truly resonate.
Can't miss the two steeples across the skyline that just beckon you to come visit. The church is pretty inside, detailed wood carvings on the doors and pews. Not quite as over the top as some of the churches we visited in Austria (or that I have seen in some other countries) but still lovely and worth having a look... More
