Grossmunster - Review

The Grossmünster is a Romanesque-style Protestant church in Zurich, Switzerland. It is one of the three major holy places in the city. The center of the present building, close to the banks of the Limmat River, was built on the site of a Carolingian temple, which was, as per legend, initially appointed by Charlemagne. The Grossmünster was a cloister chapel, vying for priority with the Fraumünster over the Limmat all through the Middle Ages. The twin towers of the Grossmunster are viewed as maybe the most distinguished milestone in Zurich. Architecturally, the church is acknowledged Romanesque in style and subsequently a part of the first dish European engineering pattern since Imperial Roman structural planning. In keeping with the Romanesque structural style, Grossmünster offers an incredible cut entrance offering medieval sections with grotesques beautifying the capitals. A Romanesque tomb dates as far back as the eleventh and thirteenth centuries.

Grossmunster, Zurich Reviews

  • Good place to visit. You can walk up to the tower for the nice view of Zurich old town. The Grossmünster is a Romanesque style Protestant church in Zurich. It is one of the four major churches in the city. The twin towers of the Grossmünster are regarded as one of the most recognized landmark in Zurich.

  • Have to pay 5 Frank to go up. Stairs are really narrow and if you are not physically fit don't try to attempt it. But the views from the top is really awesome. Worth the effort. No photography permitted inside.

  • One of the four main churches in the city dating back to the time of Charlemagne and of significant historical importance to the area. It’s free to go inside the church and look around. There are no pictures allowed inside and little information to describe what you’re looking at. But many of the stained glass windows are pretty. One of the main attractions of this church and what helps to set it apart from others is the climb to the top of one of the church’s towers. It comes at a cost of 5 francs. Depending on how busy it is, the wait to climb to the top could take up to 30 minutes. The climb itself is steep and narrow with many stairs. Those who have difficulty getting around or who dislike heights or tight spaces, should not go up. For those who do make it, the views over the city are wonderful. Be sure to bring a camera. I would recommend the tower climb if you have the time and are able. It’s one of the best views of the city from right in the heart of it.

  • Awesome view from top of the tower. However the stairs are narrow and usually you can either go up or down one at a time! You need to be quite fit to go up. I wont recommend bringing infant or children up the tower.

  • “Bouncer” (mentioned in another contributor’s review below) makes gross assumptions of guests. Granted, I should probably know better than to take a cup of coffee into a church but...didn’t sleep much on the flight here and there were no signs with any rules. Upon entering, he stopped me and rudely accused me of hiding it—and when walking outside, assumed I was going to leave my trash on the side of the church and insisted that I “walk my trash to the garbage can” (in a very impolite manner). There must have been others who have made that faux pas in the past...so I get why he would feel it necessary to mention that...but there are more respectful and tactful ways to handle oblivious tourists (unfortunately, like myself). Left a bad taste...
