Saint Michel's Church, Luxembourg City

4.1
#6 of 13 in Historic Sites in Luxembourg City
Featuring a fairytale-like Romanesque exterior, Saint Michel's Church is one of the oldest religious buildings in Luxembourg. The building's history dates back to 987, when the Count of Luxemburg erected a small chapel within his castle grounds. The present church combines a Romanesque facade with Gothic structural elements and Baroque interior decorations. Notice the pointed arches in the nave, large stained glass windows, a number of religious sculptures, and the huge Assumption of the Virgin painting mounted upon the Baroque altar.

  • One of the oldest church in Luxembourg in one of the oldest area there... It is quiet and peaceful... We prayed there and discovered this old and beautiful and small church in Luxembourg.... You can notice from the walls, the statues and the icons that it is very old but well preserved... It is a must see when you visit Luxembourg city... It is highly recommended...
