I didn't know the history of the Ulrich Zwingli until I saw the statue. Ulrich Zwingli has a lots of things you can find in Wikipedia. Knowing his history made me see this statue with different perspective. I'm glad there is a statue to memo something special for us and for our children.

Walked around the back and saw this statue right there. It was nice, nothing special, but does compliment the building.

The monument dedicated to Ulrich Zwingli is located on the south side of the Wasserkirche. You will notice in one hand is a bible and the other he holds a sword. Zwingli believed in the strict interpretation of the bible and there were strict codes put in place to uphold moral attitudes and actions of the people of Zurich. Zwingli broke off from the Roman Catholic Church and enforced is his way of thinking on the locals during his reign.

If you walk along Limatquai you can find the statue just behind the Wasserkirche (Water Church). It commemorates the leader of the reformation in Switzerland.

Ok statue next to the River Limmat. Tribute to an important Swiss Man. Tough to miss if walking along the river. I wouldn't make a special point to visit this statue unless you are well versed on Swiss culture and heritage.

The statue of Huldrych (Ulrich) Zwingli will be of limited interest to most tourists who visit Zurich. However, for those who have an interest in the history of the reformation, will enjoy seeing this statue of the man who initiated the Swiss-German Reformation in Switzerland starting in 1520.

He was very important for the religious history of Zürich. That's why Zürich is sometimes called the "Zwingli city".
There is not much to see here, but as part of the old town, the Wasserkirche etc it has a signifant meaning and fits in a tour of Zürich, especially when you walk.

There is so much to see and do when you are walking around River Limmat, Old Town area, that you can easily miss this nice statue. Located in front of Wasserkirche Church and definitely worth of photo
