"Famed Twin Spires"
The Grossmunster is possibly Zurich's best-known landmark. The crypt, dating from the latter part of the 11th Century, counts amongst the oldest surviving elements of the original Carolingian Münster or cathedral. The 12th Century brought the introduction of the nave and its impressive cloister, while the galleried basilica dates from a later period. The imposing twin towers displaying elements of Roman, Gothic and New Gothic styles, along with the frequently altered plans for extensions, caused a lengthy building phase. In 1762 the bell tower was destroyed by fire and following this the twin towers were given their present characteristic design. It was as a result of the reformation that the Grossmünster was transformed into the more soberly designed religious building it is today. Make sure you see the Sigmar Polke window.
