No camera, just take mental photos. Take a walk along the Limmat heading North afterwards to take in the beauty of the river and the view of the... More

This is a beautiful church as viewed from across the river. As most churches in this region, the insides are a little Utilitarian in style as I understand paintings were removed during reformation. The church does have a series of stained glass windows produced by Marc Chagall in 1970 and this is worth seeing. An interesting series of paintings can... More

The church was nice and peaceful, but nothing amazing. The stained glass wasn't the traditional type and was very pretty but in my opinion not a must see

This church is very pretty. The Chagall windows are beautiful. The church is in a central location and has a beautiful clock face.

Part of the city walking tour will bring you to this pretty church. While not as grand as some we have encountered the stained glass windows Behind the alter are quite pretty. Note there is currently construction in the courtyard by the enter acne however, it does not prevent access to the church.

I have been there a couple of times already and I am still fascinated by the beautiful windows. Just sit there and enjoy the view- sunny days make it look more spectacular

This church is smaller than the Grossmunster but it's actually possible to go inside. The design is fairly simple as you would expect of a Protestant church in Switzerland. The church tower is attractive and can be seen from various vantage points around the city. Photos are discouraged inside.

Simple church with most prized attraction are 5 stained glass windows of French artist Marc Chagall. Head towards the back to admire the glasses and have a seat to rest while doing so.

Very modern and interesting Stain glass window. Really contrasts with the traditional and simple design of the rest of the church.
