Fraumunster/Grossmünster/Walk through Old Town Zurich

 




Old Town ZurichThe old town of Zurich with its crooked and curvey cobbled streets are worth exploring. A stroll thru the old town gives you an insight into the rich past of this very modern swiss city.  The spacious courtyards, elaborate orels and beautiful buildings are worth a visit. The three churches Fraumünster, Grossmunster and St. Peter's are the important landmarks of Zürich.

Fraumunster: Fraumunster was formerly the church for the noblewomen of Zurich.The church was donated by Louis the German (853). The major part of the foundation of the church dates from the 9th to 11th century.The beautiful stained glass window by Marc Chagall in the chancel (1970) makes this church a must visit for art lovers.

Grossmunster: The church with its unique twin towers is the birth place of the reformation era of Swiss german. The crypt and remains of a Romanesque cloister from the 11th and 12th centuries are the oldest parts of the church. The choir window was created by Augusto Giacometti.
