In 2016 we were in Interlaken, Switzerland, as we were staying in the centre, we had plenty of time to explore. I had found a lovely little garden, and behind it was St Joseph Catholic Church. We made our way to the church, finding the door, we found something quite unexpected. The interior was modern, I can’t find any details, but I should think the building had been restored quite recently. There are a few photos of Interlaken, but the weather was not camera friendly on that particular day.

That’s a rather striking contrast between old and new! I think I prefer the old. Especially those wicked looking gargoyles. 🙂
I was quite surprised, but it was interesting to see and it was open 🙂 But thank goodness they kept the gargoyles 🙂
I like the new – the modern stained glass
The stained glass is beautiful, even thought it was dull outside, the glass shone. It was different but it had a very friendly feel to, just so not what I thought it was going to be 🙂
Particularly like the second stained glass window and the crispness of the nave interior.
Yes I liked the nave interior, bright and clean…..so different to the ones I normally visit 🙂
I can imagine that was a surprise , I found the stained glass interesting that it contained a lion,flower and a cattle head..what if they have special meaning to the locals.
They could be some kind of meaning, but as I am Church of England and not a Catholic, I not sure what it would be, maybe it’s something to do with Switzerland 🙂
