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.

Impressive in a Calvinistic way - that is, not elaborately decorated with white and gold as with Catholic cathedrals, but sombrely impressive in the Reformist tradition. The crypt is suitably cold and damp, but contains interesting friezes and an original statue of Charlemagne, a copy...More

A very beautifull church among the rush of central Zurique. Nice place to stop and thanks. I just found it too dark, but indeed fine.

Second of the 3 famous churches in downtown of zurich. You can't miss the twin tower and can explore this place of your own. It is a 12th century church.

The church is unspectacular on the inside but that is not why you go. The views of Zurich from the tower are incredible. Try to time it so that you can stand there and here the church bells from the other churches ringing as you...More

Here with work and had a few hours free time. The views from the tower at Grossmünster are breath taking. Well and truly worth the 5 CHF cover charge. A few steps to climb so may not be suitable for some elderly or very young...More

Plain, austere church, very peaceful and enjoyable just to sit there after all the walking. We are used to the very ornate Spanish churches, this was a welcome change. Small Christmas market nearby and a young lady was getting cigarette butts up from the area...More

We visited the church. While it is not as elaborate as other churches we have visited it still rates. The windows and interior are excellent. A must see when in Zurich.

Visited this place for winter's chamber orchestra doing early music favourites and some modern Christmas tunes. Great acoustics for orchestra, less so for vocals. As in all churches sight lines can be problematic. Worth doing.

You cannot miss it, it is visible from virtually everywhere in Zurich. The reform has erased most of the early decorations, but the modern windows are worth the visit. If you have the time, check out the small courtyard on the left side of the...More
