This was somewhat away from all the other major attractions. The design is unique with the green peak tower sticking out in the middle of the building.

I've seen how some reviewers dismiss this church as overly simple, as if they had fallen in love with the grandiosity of the bigger churches. Still others love the church for its simplicity. As tourists, two of the pluses of this church are that it...More

From outside this seems to be a promising little church but when you inside this isn't a place to put our time into. Also seems we weren't too wrong. There is better places to visit in the city.

Happened to be in the area and visited this cure church. Entrance is free like in other churches in Zurich. Everything well maintained and the church is in active use by the locals.

This church was very plain inside - I had expected more from the Dominicans but perhaps I am confusing them with another order? There are a couple of interesting modern sculptures but, even so, we only stayed for a couple of minutes and it was...More

This is a lovely little church in the heart of Zurich just off the main Paradeplatz street. It's quiet and not busy and free! The site was first used as a church in 1270 and is one of three Medieval churches in central Zurich. I...More

This is another small but attractive church located fairly close to Paradeplatz in the old town area. When I visited early Saturday afternoon it wasn't open, but still looked good from the outside.

The interior is quite austere but also calm. I like the grey walls and the roman Arches. After the reformation the Church has been used for wine pressing, as the master minter's workshop and as a Place of recidence which is the reason why not...More

Passed by this small church in an out of the way area off Augustinerhof. It gets little attention as most of us focused on the cute boutique shops and colorful storefronts,flags and signage along the block or so of Augustinerstrasse.

The church is small and is remarkably simple. Again like much of Zurich churches, it tended to be plain and no much decoration. However, the organ pipes caught my attention.
