"See the Hofkirche. This is the..." Lucerne Favorite Tip by steventilly

Lucerne General: 98 reviews and 131 photos


Favorite thing: See the <b>Hofkirche</b>. This is the cathedral of Lucerne, originally a monastery founded in 750. The bulk of the Gothic structure burned down in 1633 and was replaced with a renaisaance style building, though retaining it's original gothic towers. This makes for a quite unusual blending of the two architectural styles, don't you think?

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
