The church was built from the middle of the 9th century on the opposite side of the river to the Grossmünster. Today, many visitors are attracted by the five stained glass windows prepared by Marc Chagall in the 1960’s as well as by the the rosette in the south transept. Another significant glass window is "The Heavenly Paradise" (1945) by Augusto Giacometti, the uncle of the famous Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti, in the north transept.

With 5793 pipes, the organ in the Fraumünster Church is the largest in the Canton of Zurich. A cycle of frescos by Paul Bodmer depicts the legend of the founding of the monastery and of the city's patron saints Felix and Regula.
