“Chagall windows are a must see”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The blue spire can be seen for miles around and makes it easy to locate the church. It is reach the most easily on foot while strolling in the old city. The church itself is a typical stern construction from Zwingli influenced Switzerland but the 5 windows by Chagall are simply wonderful. Take the time to bask in their beauty int he viewing room.

“Chagall Windows... Worth a Visit”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I love Marc Chagall's works, so any chance to see something as fantastic as the windows he did here is worth making a trip if you're in town. The rest of the church, architecture, etc. is nothing special, but the windows make it special. Highly Recommended

“Overrated...”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Zurich was our fifth destination of Euro-trip on first week on June. We went to see Fraumunster, as we thought this is one of the best points of views in Zurich... It wasnt worth it... NOT recommended...

“pretty but touristy”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

church is pretty enough and more impressive from outside than inside. outside is also the drop off point for large tour groups, who are guided by people on amplified speaker systems which is just not necessary. Walk away!

“Chagall windows”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

the church itself is rather dull both inside and out but it is worth a visit to sit in the chapel at the back and stare at the stained glass windows by Chagall. These are truly wonderful and worth spending as much time as you can just sitting and staring.
