There is nothing interesting inside. You should pay for entrance to the tower - 5 francs per person, but it is not interesting, do not waste your money.

The Zurich landmark is also worth a visit. Not just because of the church, but also because of the views over the rooftops of the old town and lake, as well as out to the Alpine summits on the horizon.

The church is impressive from the outside and from any point of the city. Not my favorite on the inside, but is worth the visit.

The Cathedral, built during the 13th century features a Romanesque style and is topped by two twin towers. The interior though mostly unadorned, features classic Romanesque-styled architecture.

We did not do a tour. We walked around ourselves including walking up to top for great views of Zurich. How long it will take to walk up to the top of one of the lookouts depends on how many people are there a5 the same time.
