The clock face is definitely huge. It actually helps orient you to getting to the old town. I loved the walk in this area. Really worth the time.

Historically important
Jan 2020
St. Peter's is the simplest and plainest of the three major churches in Zurich. Admision is free. It's worth a peek inside this historically important church.

Amazing acoustics for concerts
Jan 2020
For a good concert one needs a good orchestra. But for a really enjoyable performance the site's acoustics must also be good. St. Peter's excels!

Clock face
Oct 2019
This is the city's oldest parish church. The enormous clock face is the continent's largest and its spire dominates the skyline. The interior is simple, in keeping with a reformation church.

Look for the Clock tower.
Aug 2019 • Friends
If you decide to walk the Bahnhofstrasse, and cut off on the Rennweg, you will soon see the tower of St. Peter's Church and its large clock. Although not as fancy as other churches, it has its own charm, and we liked the simple architecture inside. It is free to enter, and you might hear some musicians practicing. St. Peter's is part of the Protesant Church group in Zurich. The church is one of the oldest in Zurich and was the first Parish church in the city. It has the largest church clock face in Europe. Nice organ too.
