Fraumünster Church, Zurich

4.1
Admire the distinctive stained-glass windows designed by artist Marc Chagall at Fraumünster Church, a major landmark in the city's Old Town. Erected on the remains of a former Benedictine abbey for aristocratic city women, this 13th-century Gothic church features an eye-catching blue spire rising proudly over the city's skyline. In addition to Chagall's windows in the choir stalls and the southern transept, which depict various biblical stories, the church also boasts a 9 m (30 ft) tall stained glass by Swiss painter Augusto Giacometti.

  • Chagall Windows Another austere Protestant church but worth the visit for it's history (formerly an Abbey and, of course, Catholic). It has five Chagall stained glass windows that are brilliant and also one by Giacometti. The best church to visit in Zurich.
  • Beautiful stained glass and clearly well cared for church. Not as big on the inside as it looks it would be but still an interesting visit. It was CH 5 entry.
  • The church and its inneryard are very beautiful. It is a reformed church, so do not expect gold decorations but it is beautiful in its simplicity. It is sad that they charge 5 chf to get inside (even for locals) but if you want to see the windows done by Marc Schagall, go there for sure.
  • Beautiful area, great photo opportunities. The market area is full of food and clothing vendors. Be sure to spend some time on the lake down the road!
  • Simple interior, beautiful windows The SF5 worth the entrance fee. Very peaceful and calm interior despite many tourists. Photography inside not allowed
