This is a beautiful building, which boasts the biggest clock face in not just Switzerland, but all of Europe! You have to give it to Swiss time-keeping! A must-see!

This is just your average Protestant church - still used today and helps add to Zürich's skyline but nothing spectacular. There are some really nice and extravagant churches around Europe but this isn't one of them. Thankfully it's not too out of the way. Go see it, tick it off your list and move on.

Worth taking the time to actually walk to and visit the church and admire the clock close hand (forgive the pun!). Take your camera - you will not want to miss this. The church... More

A regular protestant church. It is well maintained and clearly actively used. Easy access and central location. Worth checking out if in the area in any case.

The church is more interesting from outside than inside. It's a protestant church so there is not much to see inside.
