There are a lot of Churches in Zurich, they are all well worth the visit. We went with a tour group and was told interesting facts about the Church and design of it.

Wasserkirche(=Water Church) is located right next to River Limmat. Easy to reach when you are walking along River Side towards Lake Zürich and Tram Stop right there too. On one side of the Church you can find famous Zwingli Statue

Worth to visit if you want to experience the Zwingli / Lutherian spirit. Church is very focused on telling the word - with ist little interior there are only few other to focus on. Also nice, if you can hear a concert.

Quite a small Church - and very modern on the inside. The stained glass Windows by Giacometti are very dark. When we were here the it was raining and then it was very difficult to see any details which is a shame. Not much else...More

Having just walked the Niederhof and found the Grossmunster closed at 11:30Am on a Sunday , we were especially disappointed when we found the Wasserkirche closed as well. We witnessed any number of folks trying to get into the church only to find the doors...More
