This is a beautiful church on the River Limmat. My husband and I have visited Zurich several times. We would rank this church much higher and put it on our “must see” list for Zurich. Of course, everyone goes to see the Chagall windows. The church itself is beautiful so you may want to stay a moment longer. Also, on our first visit to the church, we were allowed to go up the turret to see the City. If you are able to do this, we highly recommend it. Recently, we strolled through Old Town, went to the church, and then had lunch. The church is close to many restaurants. It is also in a fantastic location to take photographs along the river. So, you do not have to go out of your way to visit this church.

This is one of the most beautiful church I have ever visited. And I think is a must for people visiting Zurich. The location is wonderful, in the center next to the river and if you are lucky to get beautiful weather this is just the starting point of your walk over the bridge towards the old town. And on top of it the magnificent windows by Chagall.. It is just that .. You know when you enter this church but you do not know when you will get outstaring at the windows.

A "must see" in Zurich. The church contains stained glass windows by Marc Chagall. It is the "women's church" founded in 853 as a convent. Central location while walking a self-guided tour.

Lovely church that is worth to visit because of the five stain glasses made by Chagall. I highly recommend you to visit the church on a sunny day as you will see the stain glasses in all its beauty. Moreover, I think it is a good idea to read about the stories on the glasses baforehand (as there is very little if any information about them in the church), then you can sit there and try to see the stories hidden in the beautiful and intensive colours of the stain glasses.
