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.

Like a lot of other churches this one has a good photogenic appearance on the outside and good old construction on the inside. Just a short walk from the Chapel Bridge and the train station. more »
This church is just 50+ meters from the Chapel Bridge. Take it in while you are in the area. Quite beautiful. more »
Beautiful, peaceful. Went to 7am Mass. No homily to try to interpret. Be sure to get a hymnal before as they flash the hymn numbers up behind the altar so you know what hymn to turn to.
This is the most beautiful church I have ever been inside! The exterior looks quite plain, but I was absolutely amazed by the designs and woodwork inside. It’s open to the public and definitely worth a trip!
