Excursion: Zwingli's Beginnings and End, Wildhaus and Zug

Visitors interested in Zwingli's beginnings can visit the Zwinglihaus in Wildhaus, 80 miles east of Zürich. A small museum occupies the farmhouse where the Reformer was born in 1484, and includes displays of period furniture and Bibles. Zwingli celebrated his first mass as a priest in the local church before it became Protestant.

Predigerkirche (Preacher's Church)

Originally a Dominican church, the Predigerkirche became Protestant during the Reformation. In spite of the Predigerkirche's lengthy history, the church's attempt at modern relevance makes it stand out. The 13th-century sanctuary houses church pews as expected; its side aisles include a library with easy chairs and a dining area for free Sunday lunches. The church loans its building out to immigrant groups for worship, and is often the site of evening concerts.

Fraumünster (Our Lady Church)

Zürich's Fraumünster supports a graceful spire and, perhaps, the remains of Sts. Felix and Regula, but it is the church's stained glass windows that draw attention. Created by Marc Chagall in 1970, the windows depict the Prophets, the life of Jacob, the life of Christ, Zion, and the Lawgivers.

Musée International de la Réforme (International Museum of the Reformation)

The Museum of the Reformation is a must-see for religious visitors to Geneva. The location itself is historic: The building once served as an apartment complex for Huguenot refugees, which was in turn built on the ruins of St. Peter's cloister.
