  • We tried three times to visit - it has limited opening hours, so check before you go - but we're glad we persisted. This building has a fascinating history and a lot to see, including a crypt with original foundation stones, the "execution stone", and some information about the many years the building was not a church. No entrance fee, and there's a bathroom available. Put it on your list.

  • "כנסיית המים" קיבלה את שמה בשל מיקומה, על אי קטן שחובר עם השנים ליבשה. היא נבנתה בשנים 1479-84, בסגנון גותי מאוחר.

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.
