Intro

1519 – the year that changed Zurich. Ulrich Zwingli became lay priest at Zurich’s Grossmünster church, putting Zurich at the heart of the Reformation. He also paved the way for a social welfare system, the core of which remains unchanged to this day.

Zurich didn’t have a Luther – we had a Zwingli! This historical tour provides you with comprehensive information and insights about how the Reformation came about in Zurich. We stroll past the majestic facades of the most important churches in downtown Zurich, visit commemorative plaques and monuments, and discuss the key stages in the work of reformer Ulrich Zwingli. Countless stops along our route make it clear that his endeavors were certainly no walk in the park.

His disputes with the city and his calls for change are brought to life through various anecdotes and facts that were of vital importance for the success of the Reformation in Zurich.
