Zurich Cathedral (Grossmünster) is one of the three main churches in Zurich, Switzerland (the other two are the Zurich Frauenkirche and St. Peter's Church). The church is located near the banks of the Limmat River. It was built around 1100 and opened around 1220. This church across the river from the Notre Dame Cathedral played a pivotal role in the Swiss Reformation in the 16th century. The Seminary of the University of Zurich and the Reformation Museum were both established here. The stained glass in the church is a master of modern Swiss art. A masterpiece by Giacometti.
Before and after the church was founded in 1100, its architectural style is known as a Roman type twin towers, as a landmark of Zurich.

Standing on the Limmat River, I saw the Zurich Cathedral, which is recognized by Zurich as the most eye-catching landmark-the twin towers. I remembered Hugo's famous saying "A pair of huge pepper shakers". Walked into the church, paid 5 Swiss francs, spent 10 minutes, climbed nearly 190 steps, stepped onto the observation deck on the top of the church, and looked around. The Alps in the distance stood tall and the Limmat River at the foot Lake Zurich flows out slowly, and the roofs of various colors are lined up nearby, and the scenery is unique here. After wandering around the old town, the twin towers are like a beacon for guiding the way. When walking through the streets, look at her ~ never get lost.
The twin towers are the symbol of Zurich, the church is very gorgeous
