Construction of the church began in the 9th century on the opposite side of the Grossmünster. The five stained glass windows by Marc Chagall, which were created in the 1960s, and the rose window in the southern transept are particularly worth seeing. Another important stained glass window, “Heavenly Paradise” (1945), was created by Augusto Giacometti in the northern transept. He was the uncle of the famous Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti.

The organ in the Fraumünster church is the largest in the canton of Zurich with 5793 pipes. A cycle of frescoes by Paul Bodmer tells the legend of the founding of the monastery and the city saints Felix and Regula. A visit to the church is a fascinating journey through art, history and spirituality.
