FRAUMÜNSTER CATHEDRAL

Address: Münsterhof, Zurich, CH-8001, Switzerland, CH
Located on the Münsterplatz, the simple and yet imposing Fraumünster Cathedral is one of Zurich's most famous landmarks and contains many extremely distinctive stained-glass windows, which were actually created fairly recently in the 1970s and are amongst the world's most acclaimed. The cathedral was completed in 1217 and largely remains in its original condition.
Open hours: daily, May to September - 09:00 to 18:00; October to April - 10:00 to 17:00

In the 1970s, Belarussian-born Marc Chagall created a five-part stained-glass window series and a rosette for the chancel of the Fraumünster Church in Zürich. This world-famous masterpiece by Chagall still thrills visitors from around the world today. Marc Chagall remained true to his motto “When I create something from my heart, almost everything goes well” throughout his whole life. He created the windows at a very advanced age and he enjoyed excellent health right up to his death in 1985, just before his 98th birthday.
