Thought it was a chapel coz it was beside the big church. The inside was beautiful and quaint, the church has a working bell and the bell pull is just by the altar.

Love this church. Small but very well kept up. Beautiful altar, pulpit, organs and paintings. Recommend visiting if you go to the castle as its right next door.

I was up early after sunrise to the castle. The church and some graves outside were a reminder of human frailty and the short temporary stay on our planet earth. It was a day to be thankful for nature's generosity to many.

A wonderful reward after the "climb" up the hill. A delightful setting, a marvellous setting and a particularly elegant design.

Looked at the beautiful church with its magnificent organ, structure and artwork. Best kept secret is the chapel at the back up the hill. Small but even nicer.

The church was open, empty and peaceful on a Sunday afternoon. There are beautifully decorated altars and a very welcome votive candal stand. The roof is decorated and the pulpit is impressive. It is a delightful church.

We wandered in to St John's parish church on a happenstance visit to Rapperswil. The church sits just below the castle. It appears small from outside but open up to a beautifully bright house of worship. There are some beautiful images of the stations of...More

This lovely Catholic church dates from the 13th century (19th century faithful partial rebuilt) and is located next to the Rapperswil castle on the hill above the city. Don't pass it by when you leave the castle! It is worth a visit thanks to its...More
