Lucerne Jesuit Church (Jesuitenkirche Luzern)

Lucerne's Jesuit Church (Jesuitenkirche Luzern) is the first expansive baroque church built north of the Alps in Switzerland. It is a beautiful and historical site, emphasizing the Catholic tradition of veneration of saints and visual culture. When the Jesuits brought the Counter Reformation to Lucerne in the 17th century; the elaborate church, dedicated to Francis Xavier, was constructed between 1666 and 1677. Architects from Italy and Austria built what many believe to be the most beautiful Baroque church in Switzerland.

Today, Jesuit Church is a major tourist attraction and often serves as a concert venue while it has almost no role in local church and religious life. The powerful-looking Baroque church features beautiful Roccocco interiors and a vault redecorated in the 18th century. 

Practical Info

The Jesuit Church lies next to the Reuss riverbank, extremely close to the Chapel Bridge. It is worth a visit in Lucerne to admire the marble stucco and lovely paintings.

Address: Bahnhofstrasse 11A, Lucerne 6003, Switzerland
