Lovely church, and a great landmark that can be seen from afar. Lovely inside, slightly boring crypt, great statues of Zwingli outside, and lovely wooden doors (depicting important biblical women). Worth a stop, for sure!

Like any reformation church, this one is quite bare. However the views from the tower are wonderful! The crypt was also less exciting than other we've been in across Europe. Free to enter, pay to go up the tower.

Its name implies its size, and it's really large. But the most impressive thing to us was the intricately carved Biblical images -- dozens of them -- on the entry doors.

The church is beautiful from the outside and a bit basic on the inside. The windows are nice. It is a functioning church, so tours on Sunday morning are limited. The entrance to the church is free and don't forget to go to the crypt....More

A lovely church, probably the most recognisable in Zurich due to its twin towers. Definitely worth a look.

This church was the center of the Swiss reformation. It is free to visit (except the tower). It was an eye opening to experience the modern artwork made by Polke between 2006 and 2009.

We did not do a tour. We walked around ourselves including walking up to top for great views of Zurich. How long it will take to walk up to the top of one of the lookouts depends on how many people are there a5 the same time.
