Chagal Windows

The attitude of the keepers may not be very good but as I went with a tour no problems.The windows are great.See them once but the place is touristy.Some like it some do not.

unless you are really a fan of Chagall or want to make sure you do not miss a church. I have seen to many more interesting so that one will not stick to my memory.

Tried to visit on Sunday but was not allowed for the service even though I wanted to attend to pray and not just as a tourist, but the rude man at the entrance wouldn't allow me in. It did state it would be open after 12 noon but it remained closed to visitors except with a tour. Really disappointing and... More

Despite the really unpleasant lady on the door who regarded every entrant to this hallowed place as an apparent threat, this building has always been a favourite haunt of mine in Zurich and it never disappoints - just sit for ages gazing at the beautiful Chagall windows and you experience a piece of heaven - do drop in and spend...

Beautiful church, make sure to view from across the Limmit as it looks great in the skyline. The spire sticks out above the surrounding buildings and is super easy to spot

The Frauenmunster (women's cathedral) is near the Limmat river but allows men inside too :-) It is not completely austere, but also not highly decorative.

this is the church in the middle of town with the Chagall windows. He made them as a gift to Zurich. I think they are the most beautiful thing in town. I have never seen more colerful windows in a church.

At times one wonders wether Lord J should not sweep this church of city of Zurich official tourist guides, who trough their brabbelings about the history of the famous stained glass windows destroy any chance of studying and meditating of and on the beauty of these great windows. These crones should be kept far including their flocks of cackeling tourists.... More
