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.

  • This is a beautiful protestant church in Zurich with famous Chagall windows. It is worth spending 30 - 60 min here and listen to the info on the audio guide. Very quiet place with special atmosphere.
  • Beautiful inside and outside of the structure. Fantastic staff and most colorful stained-glass I have ever seen. Definitely a must see.
  • 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.
  • Great architecture.. Built in. 1732
  • Nice little attraction with a simple museum in the basement talks a bit about history about Christainism in Europe.
