Admire the distinctive stained-glass windows designed by artist Marc Chagall at Fraumünster Church, a major landmark in the city's Old Town. Erected on the remains of a former Benedictine abbey for aristocratic city women, this 13th-century Gothic church features an eye-catching blue spire rising proudly over the city's skyline. In addition to Chagall's windows in the choir stalls and the southern transept, which depict various biblical stories, the church also boasts a 9 m (30 ft) tall stained glass by Swiss painter Augusto Giacometti.

  • The church has stained glass windows of Marc Chagall and Giacometti that are beautiful and full of meanings. I enjoyed hearing the whole church story.

  • Here it is basically to admire the stained glass windows of Chagall and Giacometti. The first ones, together with the rosette of the same artist, truly capture your soul with their wonder. The two stained glass windows by Giacometti are also beautiful. Not to be missed!
