  • When you have visited Zurich, reformed churches, as the Interior is, after all, something dry, such as Huldrych Zwingli and his contemporaries wanted it, so it can be experienced as something of a liberation to get into the beautifully decorated the Liebfrauenkirche, the Catholic Church, which is situated high up, of hillside, not far from Zurich Hauptbahnhof. The Church was designed by the architect August Hardegger and built 1892-1894. The architecture brings reminiscent of early Italian construction style. I came immediately to mind Basilica di Sant'Ambroggio in Milan, when I saw Liebfrauenkirches high, Square Tower. Inside the Church is a Basilica-like space, also conveys the Italian inspiration, with a wide nave separated by two smaller times. Here is no side chapels. The walls are everywhere, nice decorated with a thematic frieze of Fritz Kunz. The style is backward-looking, but it fits very well into the space, and it is fascinating to walk around and see the many pictures that are placed high up high up under the Windows, that sheds light into the room. As mentioned is the church a piece up the mountain, and it might be a little out of breath when taking the trip on foot from Zürich Hauptbahnhof and up to the Church, but it is worth to go up here and view this church, which is so different than the big, reformed churches in the city.

  • In the heart of the city, not outwardly very similar to the typical Church, and attracts, inside the marble and beautiful frescoes, is worth a visit, get into the spirit, consider painting just sit inside.
