  • A beautiful place, from the staircases you have a beautiful view of Lucerne! Also amazing the cemetery, next to the church... Didn't know anything like that! Recommend!!

  • This church is a very good example of typical Swiss architecture at the end of the Renaissance. The original church was built in the 12th century and was completely destroyed by fire in 1633. Only the two towers remained and were incorporated in the current building. The interior has been decorated with Renaissance style as well as the statues of the Saints Leodegar Kai Mauritius patron saint of the city of Lucerne. It is close to the center of the city going for a stroll in the lake.

  • The Court Church is the main church of Lucerne. I am a Lucerne citizen, but I have only recently learned that there are special guided tours. A great guided tour is every first Friday of the month at 5.30pm. You will get information about the church with the different styles, about the two city cartridges Leodegar and Mauritius, as well as special peculiarities about the organ (rain machine) and the choir stalls. The highlight is certainly the opening of the treasury with the conquered chalice of the Burgundy king of Grandson. It is also worth taking this lead as Lucerne. Registration is desirable.
