I didn't plan go there, but chanced upon the place, by visiting only the courtyard. The beautifully painted murals were a pleasant surprise. You have to see to appreciate the special beauty of the place.

This is the one to see windows. This church has been very well done for visitors. Be careful it is not always open as it is still a church. I got there too early and had to go back to see it. Only CHF 5...More

One of my favourite spots in Zurich. The church is so pretty from the outside and the Chagall windows were very nice to see. The admission price was quite good, so definitely worth it.

Each time I go, the windows strike me more deeply. The intense colors, the Bible stories, the simple old church- it becomes a place of meditation and reflection. 5 francs/ fee. Right across the bridge from the Grossmuenster Church. Easy to see in an hour...More

Good audio guide and pleasant place to spend an hour. The history is interesting and the Building well managed. I do not think they take credit cards, so bring local currency of €5 each. The Chagall windows are worth the visit alone.

The church itself is pretty ordinary compared to others Central Europe from the same era. The reason for visiting is the beautiful artwork by Marc Chagall. The four tall glass paintings are amazingly beautiful and compelling. 👌

There is a small entrance fee to this lovely old chapel. The highlight is the stained glass windows by Chagall. One needs less than an hour to visit.

You can take a train from Zurich Airport to Bahnhof ( Central Train Station), will take about 30min, then it’s a short walk or 2 -3 team stops
