St. Urban Monastery

The Cistercian Monastery of St. Urban (Canton of Lucerne) was built in 1194. The monastery church, built 1711-1717, is a combination of Baroque and Cistercian architecture.

The high altar contains statues of the four evangelists, Pope Urban and Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. The choir stalls were made shortly after 1700, the organ in 1716-1721.

The monastery and the baroque buildings are surrounded by a spacious park, footpaths, watercourses and woods.
