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...more
All reviews twin towers beautiful church bronze doors worth the climb stained glass small fee great views from the tower old church no photos allowed across the river limmat river worth a visit swiss francs crypt charlemagne polke agate
Easy climb up a narrow staircase and not too high - and i am terrified of heights. Only issue is same way up and down so always having to stop to let people pass. Great view form the top. Cathedral is beautiful
This is an important landmark church of Zurich, it looks good, but I was more interested of the legend behind building it.
Legend goes: there were two brothers who ran off to Zurich for safety after they converted to Christianity.
But According to legend, the...More
Very cramped going up those stairs at the beginning! I suffer with asthma which kicks off with stairs (not usually a problem as I just nip in to one side to calm my breathing) but the first flight of stairs was so tight that we...More
My wife, son, daughter and I visited Grossmunster in Zurich in November 2018. Grossmunster with its two towers dominates the historical center of Zurich. We went inside for a few minutes and the church has very nice stained glass. Grossmunster and Fraumunster are on opposite...More

We did not do a tour. We walked around ourselves including walking up to top for great views of Zurich. How long it will take to walk up to the top of one of the lookouts depends on how many people are there a5 the same time.
hello we have only 8hours in zurich starting 9am and have to leave by 5pm, can you kindly advise whether we can all the following within these 8hours? City tour Lake Zurich Grossmunster Old Town Hanhofstrasse Rhine waterfall & Cruise if it is not possible, our first priority is Rhine waterfall & cruise, which other can we include? thank you choy

Hi Choy, Rhinefalls is 4-5 hours travel (Schloss Laufen am Rheinfall station) plus sightsee. Hence not that much time left after it. I'd combine with walking Bahnhofstrasse and maybe a short lake cruise. See here https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g18811… for the town suggestions. All the best, <Erik> & [Sandya]

Just came back from Interlaken and Zurich. There was so much to see in Interlaken. We walked around the first night to get out bearings. We did paragliding with Paragliding Interlaken (excellent) and we did day trips to Schilthorn and to Jungfrau and other towns. Schilthorn can be cone in the afternoon but just be wary of the cable car times. A lot of things top by like 5:30 or 6 so you have to time it right. With Jungfrau, it's best to go in the mornings to avoid the crowd since it's 2-1/2...More
