This ordinary church has some striking modern features. Most notably the stained glass windows have been somewhat updated from the original and feature some daring modern interpretations. Lovely for a moment of reflection. (Unless you are besieged by a party of Japanese tourists!)

Worth a visit but not one of Europe's great churches. Luxembourg is hardly over-run with tourist sights so its worth popping in.

We were lucky to visit during the organ concer rehearsal. Sitting in this ancient church and absorbing divine sounds of Bach's organ music was simply uplifting and calming at the same time.

One of the older places of worship around, St. Michel's towers are part of a rather uninspiring Luxembourg skyline. It has some modern stained glass and it looks like a place where people can pray. It's not a museum by any stretch.

Having visited many churches and Cathedrals around the word this one left me very much uninspired. Some nice small pieces of modern stained glass but little else to justify a visit.

This is worth your time. Saint Michel's is a simle church, with a lot of beauty packed inside. Try not to go on Sunday during service if you are just looking to do some sightseeing inside.

This church is quite a treasure,not only because of it's historical significance,but also because of the location where it has been built:it's part of the very old city,near the ,Bock' and the entrances to the casemattes.Standing there outside,you have a beautiful view over the Alzette-Valley.If you are lucky,you may assist to a concert or a mass:this church has it's owen...

We visited this church during one of the brief rain showers in Luxembourg and it's a good sized, interesting old church with many varying architectural elements to attract your eye and keep you looking for quite awhile. It's an active church that doesn't mind visitors.

This Church, while not the Vatican holds its own in Luxembourg. The free admission to the church gives some beautiful views and some serenity. The church is active. There can be music activities at night time. Check schedules with the church. I would think outside the view from the Casements this is the number two thing to experience in Luxembourg.
