Things to do in Zurich
The Grossmunster is one of the four major churches in Zurich. The church’s
congregation forms part of the Evangelical Reformed Church of the Canton of

Charlemagne. The Protestant church was constructed in the 12th and 13th centuries in Romanesque style. The church houses a
Reformation museum in its 12th century cloister. The 15th century twin towers of the church are considered to be among
the most recognized landmarks in the city.
