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

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...More

An important figure in the story of the Reformation. Protestants should read about Zwingli to understand his role in theology of the church.

Well the title says it all, if you're not looking carefully you will miss this moment, overall is a poor statue, hidden in a corner. If this is supposed be in honour of an important religious character it makes nothing for it.

Just a chance find as we waked by. Out for a Sunday walk and after a visit to church we decided to walk another way and by chance we came across the Ulrich Zwingli Monument. Very nice.

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

This statue is an interesting testament to the history of Zurich. It's worth walking by and having a look if you are in the area. Perhaps it will entice you to look more deeply into Zurich's past.
