Travel Guide: Zürich

Things to do:

1. Visit the 2 of Zürich’s most famous historical landmarks: Grossmünster and Fraumünster, flanking both sides of the Limmat. Grossmünster Romanesque towers offer a great view over the city, and the church is also famed for its Christmas stained glass window. The 13th Century Fraumünster can boast a series of stunning windows designed by artist Marc Chagall. The best place to take a picture with the iconic landmarks is on the bridge close to the opera house.
