Owner description: 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.

“Only interesting if you go up the tower”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

... but climbing up the tower is fun and the view from the top is outstanding, even when the weather is bad. The church itself is uninteresting from an architectural perspective. I would recommend trying to see the cloister next door, which is an oasis of peace.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

If you go to Zurich, you must go to the top. On a sunny day you will have amazing views of the whole area including Lake Zurich and the Alps.
