You are before one of the most important buildings in Zurich's history.
It all began here
A visit to Grossmünster church means to go back in time. The Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, which originated in Germany, arrived in Switzerland a few years later to change this country forever: the criticism of the Roman Catholic Church and the acceptance of the new Protestant one took place here in this church, as it was at the Grossmünster altar from where Ultico Zuinglio raised his voice to the believers, in order to defend Protestantism. From an architectural point of view, this is a magnificent Romanesque-style building with certain Gothic touches built between the 11th and 12th centuries, although new parts were added following its subsequent and successive refurbishments. The Grossmünster particularly stands out due to its beautiful stained glass windows, Romanesque capitals, and its bronze doors designed by Otto Münch during the middle of the 20th century, as well as its slender twin towers rising up to the sky, making this church a real emblem of the city.
