Cheap hotels near St. Peter's Church in Zurich, Switzerland

Near the Grossmünster church, and within the Lindenhof neighborhood, sits Zurich’s oldest church, St. Peter’s. It was founded in the seventh century and still maintains the largest clock tower in Europe (at 28 feet in diameter).

The church not only holds a special place in Zurich’s skyline (look up from almost anywhere in the city and you can see that clock tower), it was also the first Protestant church in Zurich post-reformation.

Back in the day, a town watchman lived above the clock and alerted the town of impending dangers. The first mayor of Zurich, Rudolph Brun, is buried at the church.

You can visit the church Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Sundays, you can attend a service here for free. For more information (including how to request a visit to the tower), visit St. Peter’s Church’s Web site.
