Enge Church is already visible from a distance. Visitors entering its dome are treated to a magnificent view over Zurich.
Important church buildingNeo-Renaissance styleArchitect Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli
The Reformed Enge Church is well worth a visit. On the one hand, it is considered the most important Neo-Renaissance church in Switzerland, and on the other, it reveals much about the self-image of liberal Protestantism in the late 19th century.
This architectural gem, affectionately known by some locals as the “Sacré-Coeur of Zurich”, stands in an elevated location on a moraine hill. Built by architect and ETH professor Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli between 1892 and 1894, it offers a magnificent view of the lake basin and the city.
On every second Thursday from May to September, the sexton of Enge Church invites interested visitors to join him on a tour of the tower and dome. Those with a head for heights can climb the little tower above the viewing platform in the dome. However, the viewing platform itself also offers a breathtaking and unique view of Zurich and the lake.
