Fraumunster - Review

The Fraumunster Church in Zurich is one of the most important churches in the city. It was established in 853 by Louis the German for his daughter, Hildegard, on the grounds of a convent. He enriched the Benedictine religious circle with the terrains of Zurich, Uri, and the Albis woodland, and allowed the community safety, setting it under his immediate authority. The convent was broken up on 30 November 1524 over the span of the reorganization of Huldrych Zwingli. The cloister edifices were pulverized in 1898 to make space for the new Stadthaus.(delete) The church building today serves as the ward chapel for one of the city's 34 improved areas. Munsterhof, the town square before Fraumünster, is named after the previous abbey that had been present there. This location is recommended for those people who want to get a feel for the austere places that this otherwise modern town can offer. Make it a point to visit on an afternoon and watch the light coming in from the ornate windows.

Fraumunster, Zurich Reviews

Google+
  • One of the four main churches in the city dating back to 853 AD and a large piece of the history of Zürich. It costs 5 francs to get inside. Once in, there are no pictures allowed, but your entrance fee does come with either an audio tour or a shorter, less informative written booklet tour pointing out several key things to observe. The interior is far less decorative than many other churches across Europe. There is a small crypt that you can depend into to learn more about the history and building of the church, but it’s not much to see. Overall, it’s not much to see. I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit, but also given that Zürich isn’t awash with tourist attractions and historical sites, it’s a good way to spend about 30 minutes to an hour while in the city.

  • very unusual church ..as does not conform to a typical description of a church. The green steeple can be seen from far. Its a very old church ...was a convent before. Ample parking around the church. The newly wed couples always head to this church for a picture ..maybe an auspicious omen.

  • Over priced entrance to a church that will not allow photos. It was actually not very interesting and there would have only been a few photos worth capturing. The outside of the church was of more interest.

  • Stained glass by Chagall is marvellous. Free for students. Better with an audioguide

  • This is a beautiful protestant church in Zurich with famous Chagall windows. It is worth spending 30 - 60 min here and listen to the info on the audio guide. Very quiet place with special atmosphere.
