Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Zurich is at the outfall of Lake Zurich, on the Limmat river. Looking upriver from the Rathausbrücke (Townhall Bridge) towards the lake here, you see the twin towers of the Grossmünster, which was the birthplace of Swiss Reformation: it was where Huldrych Zwingli preached. Like all Calvinist churches, it has a rather austere interior with all Catholic ornaments removed. The top part of the towers is neo-Gothic. The river-front building in front is the Haus zum Rüden, a guildhall.
