(Built from 1719)
The Einsiedeln Abbey is a Benedictine abbey in the Einsiedeln municipality within the Canton of Schwyz. The abbey’s main building is the dual-spired collegiate church that was built from 1719 until its consecration in 1735. It was designed by Caspar Moosbrugger and is considered to be the most important baroque church building in Switzerland.

Full restoration is taking place from 2013 to 2022 and aims to recreate the original Baroque appearance which to some extent had been distorted by earlier renovations. The new renovation uses SCHOTT TIKANA® restoration glass in the main exterior of the Einsiedeln Abbey. The glass has a slightly irregular surface to blend harmoniously into the overall image, and combines a historical look with modern building properties.
