Fondation E.G.Bührle Collection
Widely acknowledged as one of the foremost collections of European art, this gallery is centered on French Impressionism and Post-Impression and offers an impressive selection of notable works by such illustrious names as van Gogh, Degas, Monet, Renoir, Manet, Gauguin and Cézanne. Intended to showcase the progression of artistic philosophy that eventually led to the relative freedom of 20th century Modernism, the collection is housed in the former home of the industrialist who lends his name to the museum.
Galerie Gmurzynska 
Galerie Gmurzynska is a relative newcomer to the Zurich art scene, but its reputation precedes it thanks to more than 40 years showcasing classic Modernist work in Cologne.  This move to Switzerland heralds the beginning of an expansion that will seek to incorporate artwork from the early 20th century. Aesthetes will appreciate the wrought ironwork of the stylish townhouse that now houses the collection.

Urania Observatory

Urania Sternwarte is a public observatory in the Lindenhof quarter of Zurich, Switzerland.
Church of Our Lady (Fraumunster) 
A slender blue spire points skyward from the current church, which was a gift from Ludwig the German. It is famous for its stained glass windows by Marc Chagall. The church is located in Zürich along the Limmat River on Fraumünsterstrasse at one end of the Münsterbrucke (bridge) with the Grossmünster found across the river opposite the same bridge. St. Peter’s Church is only a few blocks north along the same side of the river as Fraumünster.
Great Church (Grossmunster) 
This 12th-century cathedral has both historical and architectural significance: Ulrich Zwingli led an important sect of the Reformation from here in the early 1500s, and the cathedral’s twin towers serve as perhaps the most recognizable landmarks in modern Zürich.
