Create an itinerary including Jesuitenkirche
The first large-scale Baroque church in Switzerland, Jesuitenkirche was constructed in 1666 for the Jesuits. It sits dramatically on the banks of the Reuss River, its symmetrical onion domes clearly recognizable in the city's skyline. Step inside to witness the building's even more impressive interior. Elaborate frescoes, brightly colored domes, a magnificent organ, large chandeliers, and a gilded altar all contribute to the splendor of this historic church. Take time to examine the red marble in the side chapels closely--they are actually the result of clever paintwork. With our online itinerary creator, Lucerne attractions like Jesuitenkirche can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
