This should be the highest building in the city and you can see a whole city view from here. I was suprised that there was a tomb on the back in the church and some secret tunnels(cannot walk in now). It is not only a place to see the overview of the city or attend mass. you can also walk... More

Look very very closely in this cathedral. There are four green men / foliate heads and two columns with some very interesting carvings, not the sort you would expect to find inside a cathedral. Known as exhibitionist figures, these will make you smile and maybe lift an eyebrow if you can find them.

The Munster is in the centre of the old town. There is a disabled access at the side of the church thus avoiding lots of steps. Inside it is magnificent, some particularly fine statues of the Madonna. If you are in to Church architecture this is a find.

This is a beautiful church with beautiful and interesting interiors. You can spend a long time inside and learn a lot about history of this place. But even if you are not a history lover I recommend at least to climb to its tower with an amazing view to the lake. And if you are fortunate (like we were) and... More

This is a wonderful church with all eras on show since it suffered virtually no damage in the 20th century. Make sure to go down to the lower church where you can find a 15th century reproduction of the Holy Sepulcure with the most expressive figures: how Mary does smile when she realizes that she is going to be the...

This cathedral represents different architectural styles, from romanic to baroque. A walk through this building is a walk through the history of architecture. Take your time to look at some unique highlights!

Disclaimer: I did my dissertation on music composed for this building in 1507-08, so have a subjective connection to it. I have been visiting every few years since 1990 and spent four months in residence in 2008. I have known three different directors of music for the Muenster and they have all remained good friends. This was once the center... More

Is worth to visit , it is a cathedral , with a crypt of saint Konrad and saint Pelagius. It was a diocese until 1821. It has a cloister, and a tower, the tower is closed until march 2016 for renovation.

This is a fantastic gothic Cathedral which is not mentioned frequently beyond the local area - which is a shame as it rivals the most fancy churches of Europe. The tower may be visited in the summer months, the view from there is grand.

The Münster is one of my favorite places to show tourists who come to visit because it's so full of history. Built over ancient Roman ruins, the church was first mentioned in the 8th century. As the primary religious location for the Council of Constance and the site of the condemnation of Jan Hus, history fans have much to find... More
