  • Cute Monument near Vasserkirhe in the heart of the city. Zwingli went on to Luther to facilitate worship, completely eliminating of temples sacred images (besides crucifixion) and organs. Teachings of Zwingli was next. The only source of faith, the Gospel. The Papacy, monasticism, celibacy of the clergy, teachings about purgatory, etc. have no basis in Scripture. Spiritual power also has no basis in the teachings of Christ, and the Church is the set of all individuals in the community, and not just the clergy. Sacraments at Zwingli got the value of simple pious practices. City Council sided with Zwingli in Zurich and was committed by transforming worship adopted shortly and some other cantons. Here's such a renowned and humble 16-century Church reformer and a monument.

  • It is a monument to the leader of Swiss Reformation - Zwingli. Nice place by a church with good views.
  • It's a monument of an important protestant reformation minister. The monument is in a small outdoor area with a few people hanging out beneath the shade of the tree.
  • Monument to this important reformer. Freed the message of Jesus from 1500-year-old slag and contaminated sites.

Where to stay in Zurich

As the financial hub of the country, it shouldn't come as a surprise that staying in Zurich usually comes at a price. The city puts emphasis on its glamorous four- and five-star hotels and international chains that appeal to traveling professionals. There a handful of hostels and guesthouses for the budget-conscious traveler. When staying in Zurich, you'll find that the majority of the accommodation offerings are in close proximity to the city core, either on the left or right bank. The left bank is the glitzier of the two, with its grand restaurants, shops, and proximity to the banks and train station. The right side, as home to the Old Town, charms with its historical atmosphere. Here you'll find independently owned boutique hotels and some mid-range options. The city also sports several hotels geared toward wellness, with spas and saunas. These tend to be pricey too, but you're guaranteed a truly relaxing retreat.
