This small church bears witness to a lot of history. Even the status of the church as a church changed from time to time. It is worth seeing the crypt inside the church. From the outside the church does not seem impressive but its location near the river that gives it a bit of taste.

Once upon a time built on an island in the river, this church now is part of the mainland, but still looking into the river. Visit the underground part for some city history.

I stopped in on a nice fall day recently to check out this church and was surprised by its history and story. The man there, Urs, was very friendly and told me all about the windows and the crypt of the church. We also talked about Europe and the US in general. The windows up front were not clearly seen...

The church is a very intriguing and an interesting place. I wasn’t expecting to learn much but the visit was a memorable one. It is very peaceful inside as it is not very crowded. The church is a historical masterpiece, be it the architecture or the various crypts in its belly. It is a place for history connoisseurs for sure.

The church is located on the Limmat in a shared complex with the Helmhaus. The day I visited there were musicians practicing on stage and it was nice to listen to the live performance. The church has very high vaulted ceiling and the intricate stained glass windows were decorated by Augusto Giacometti. (FYI: Giacometti works also displayed in the main... More

The whole love story is charmingly explained in the underground of the church. Regula & Felix, you will find them again and again in Zurich.
