Grossmünster: Zurich's Twin Towers
According to legend, Zurich’s most iconic landmark was commissioned by Charlemagne. While Fraumünster, across the Limmat, pulls onlookers with its stained glass windows by Chagall, Grossmünster recently acquired destination-worthy art of its own: German artist Sigmar Polke’s beautiful, kaleidoscopic motifs featuring Old Testament figures, installed in 2009.

Night Tour of Grossmünster
For an unforgettable experience, Zurich’s most iconic landmark offers free night tours at 10pm on the last Friday of each month. Visitors can climb up the 187 steps of the Karlsturm (Charles Tower) to take in the incredible views of the city, made even more spectacular with Zurich’s “Plan Lumiere” project, which highlights prominent landmarks with soft, white light.

The Grossmünster
Strolling along the Limmat river we saw this grand Romanesque church. Unfortunately we did not have the time to go inside.
