Karlsturm Grossmünster (closed)

Together with Charlemagne you can watch over Zurich from the famous Karlsturm (Charles Tower).

The Karlsturm is one of the two towers of Zurich’s landmark, the Grossmünster Church.

The Grossmünster Church is a former monastery built on the graves of the city’s patron saints, Felix and Regula, and is the site of the first secondary school, which according to legend, was founded by Charlemagne. His statue stands on top of the south tower, the Karlsturm. Climb up the 187 stairs from the nave and enjoy splendid views from the panorama platform over Zurich's old town and the lake.
