Want to discover the best Zurich has to offer? This in-app audio tour is for you! Start your tour from the monument of Pestalozzi, one of the greatest pedagogues who made a massive contribution to the theory and practice of pedagogy. Admire the magnificent view of Zurich from Lindenhof Hill. It used to be a Roman fortress, and later, a Carolingian royal palace was built in its place, and the wonderful garden with linden trees appeared. Gaze the fascinating facades of Saint Peter's Church with the four key notes of the bell: each sounds at a certain time and corresponds to a particular event. The church also has the largest clock face in Europe: nearly 9 meters in diameter! Discover the Grossmunster Church built in a mixture of different styles and the Wasserkirche, where the first public library in Zurich was opened. Wander around the Weinplatz with the beautiful fountain depicting a Swiss winemaker, which recalls the medieval history of the square, when vineyard owners used to sell their wine here. The oldest building in the city, the Hotel zum Storchen, where such famous guests as Goethe and Mozart stayed, is also situated here — listen to the legend about it. Have a look at the Town Hall, the magnificent facade of which is decorated with a beautiful arcade. This and many more are waiting for you on your tour through Zurich!
