  • The Church itself is different from the standard views, interesting history and legends of this place about the revived corpses with beheaded etc Excellent observation deck at the top, at the bottom are also good. Because Zurich is not very big, then go through all it's worth.

  • Little one, graphic next & onto the river. Without chlides and megaloprepeies. The point is what makes the difference. I was expecting more after all of the other two magnificent churches of Zürich (frau & gross) and maybe the little one that seemed much better. We found refuge there during floods etc astamatitits the last day.

  • Unfortunately I too like other reviewers I found it closed but still being situated opposite the river and being aesthetically very pleasing, even just from the outside, it offers the possibility to make beautiful pictures.
