Additional Information

Introduction

The Zurich Cathedral is located on the Limmat River, opposite the Church of Our Lady. Its unique twin towers have become a symbol of Zurich, blending Romanesque, post-gothic and neo-gothic styles. The founder of the Zurich Cathedral is the famous Karl the Great. After the rebuilding in the 11th-13th centuries, you can see the statue of Carl the Great on the South Tower, but this is a replica, and the authentic collection is in the underground of the church. Within the hall.
