General information

The Reformed Lukaskirche (Church of St. Luke) is but a few minutes’ walk from the main train station, right next to the popular Lucerne park known as the Vögeligärtli. The building, which features an imposing outside staircase and a stunning tower, was designed between 1933 and 1935 by the Lucerne-based architects Alfred Möri and Karl-Friedrich Krebs. Shortly before they had created the Villa Senar in Hertenstein for the Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff – another example of early Modernism. Dominating the interior of the Lukaskirche are the colorful stained-glass windows that Eduard Renggli executed from the designs of Louis Moillet.
