Overview

This 12th-century cathedral has both historical and architectural significance: Ulrich Zwingli led an important sect of the Reformation from here in the early 1500s, and the cathedral's twin towers serve as perhaps the most recognizable landmarks in modern Zürich.

We climbed all the way up the narrow staircase. It’s just 5 franks....well worth it. But only payable in cash! Be aware! Views are amazing...especially with the fresh snow we had...snow covered mountains and the lake...we would recommend!

Grossmunster propestant church (a former monastery) is historically significant for the (canton of) Zurich, nowadays serving as the most recognized landmark of the city, entrance is free (visit to the towers is at a fee), remarkable entrance doors, quiet and beautifully simple on the inside.

The historic Grossmunster, which dates back to around 1100, is a Protestant Romanesque church overlooking the Limmat River in Zurich. It is well worth visiting, but visitors should know that photographs are not permitted inside.

Be sure to familiarize yourself with Felix and Regula before leaving. From Charlemagne commissioning a church on this site to the Swiss Reformation beginning here, this place has some historical or legendary significance.

Climb to the top of the bell tower—it is a worthy view. The space at the top is a bit cramped but you will have a 360-degree view and it is quite spectacular. The climb up is a bit tiring and daunting but worth it....More

The bronze doors and stained glass by Giacometti are the only reason to view this rather austere church. And, if the weather is good, you can climb up one of the towers for a view of the city.
