Some of the most beautiful church windows I have ever seen.

I like art, contemporary art and that is probably the reason why in my opinion the church windows of the Grossmünster are among the most beautiful ones I have ever seen.  In 2006, Sigmar Polke won the invited competition to design the church windows. It has taken him 3 years to complete the 12 windows. It turned out to be his last big project, Sigmar Polke passed away in 2010.


Also very stunning and in a more traditional way are the Chagall church windows of the Fraumünster church. The 5 large stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall wer installed in 1970. Each of the 5 has a dominant color and depicts a Christian story.
