When we arrived we could not get in as services were going on. However we waited and were glad we did. The beautiful openness and wood were wonderful to see. The tolling of the bells was fantastic.

Another church that stands out while you're doing your walking around Zurich and another church for some great photos and scenery. You can't miss this when in Zurich. Didn't get a chance to go inside

The church can b recognized by the impressive large clock on the tower that is an element of the Altstadt on the left side of the Limmat.. Nice external appearence, but nothing special inside.
