St Moritz exterior isn't as imposing as other churches, but venture inside for a real treat. Don't miss climbing the bell tower. It's a steep, winding climb but the views from the top are worth the effort.

If you get a chance, hear an organ concert in this church like we did. That was a seriously impressive sound! Also, visit the church tower. After a scary and dizzying climb up you are treated to a great view of the city!
