This church is situated on on hill overlooking the city. It has beautiful gardens and a cemetery around it. The organs are suppose to be excelllent and there are concerts during the year. We were unable to attend one.

It's serene and peaceful, very noticeable in Lucerne, you can't miss it. inside looks ok, but it's one of landmarks in Lucerne after the Chapel Bridge. Check it out if you have time, but not a must.

This is an attractive Catholic church very close to the Casino and easy to find since its towers loom above the surrounding buildings. It is okay as a place to pray or meditate for a while. Architecturally, I didn't note anything special.

Located near the Lake Lucerne, The church is a beautiful and peaceful place. The moment you set your sights on it near lake Lucerne, it immediately attracts you to it. So do yourself a favour, take some time out of your shopping and visit this church.

Built on the foundations of an old Roman basilica, the Church of St. Leodegar is a beautiful place to spend some quiet time praying. The architecture is beautiful. Its spires can be seen even from the lakefront.

As we wandered around Lucerne, we could always see the spires of this church. We were surprised that it wasn't listed in our guidebook. We eventually made it to the church and weren't disappointed. It was beautiful inside and had great views looking back over the lake. This is definitely worth seeing.

I found Hofkirche to be very serene and peaceful. Impressive interiors and I got a most beautiful photograph of Mary among the Autumn foliage outside!

Very well built. Not as grand as the massive well known churches but it is quite a fascinating site.

Beautifully embellished church that was clearly a working church. Loved seeing the children's area near one of the altars and the photos of children newly welcomed into the community by baptism.
