Even if you’re not religious, a stop here is a must. Walking in your jaw will drop, at least mine did. Looking straight ahead at the altar and how intricate and beautiful it is. The high ceilings and paintings are absolutely beautiful.

I was there for the investiture of the knights of the Holy Sepulchre. This church is beautiful with a wonderful altar. The light is quite bright which is quite rare in a church.

The Jesuitkirche is indeed a beautiful and intricately constructed place of worship. It is a recommended visit and the interiors of the church, from the altar to the carvings are indeed worth a closer look.

I went to this church during a visit to Lucerne, it is close to the Chapel Bridge. The church construction started in 1667. The artwork and architecture is impressive, well worth a visit, recommended.
