This is a beautiful 17th century baroque church. The onion-topped towers can be seen from far away across the River Reuss. The rose pink and white inside was amazing with wonderful plasterwork and paintings on the ceiling. One feels small when standing close to the beautiful and big high altar. There is no entrance fee.

Nice little church which hits you all of a sudden in middle of a weekly market

The day we visited the church was on one of the most miserable days in Luzern. The heavy snowfall outside promted us to spend much of the day doing indoorsy things. With its onion domes on the outside, the Jesuit Church promised to be something rather special from the get-go; but I was not prepared for the stunning views on the inside.

I love churches .... and this church has got to be ranked up there as one of the most beautiful ones I have seen to date. Its salmon pink walls etched with wonderful plasterwork and scrolls. The chandaliers are heavenly to look at .... wish I could have one in my house. The paintings on the ceiling and in the larger than life portraits are all stunning. The decor of entire church does look a bit "busy" yet somehow they all fit together quite nicely. I must admit this has got to be the first ever PINK church I have ever been to.

There was a light show on the walls of the church at night, which was night but completely deserted inside. Felt a bit unsafe in there.
