Places to visit
Grossmünster

Grossmünster, or 'Gross Monster' as it's lovingly referred to by English speakers, is Zurich's most important church and one of the city's most distinctive landmarks. The original church was supposedly commissioned by the Emperor Charlemagne himself.  It was also supposedly the burial place of Zurich's patron saints: Felix and Regula.  The present structure was built in the traditional Gothic style during the twelfth century and consecrated around 1220AD.  The twin, neo-Gothic spires were added in 1781 after the original wooden steeples were destroyed in a fire.
