Impossible to miss this church in the Zurich limmat river mini skyline. It's quite striking and a great photo opp. The clock is truly something. You should definitely check this church out when in Zurich

The St. peters church is located just behind the Fraumuster church. The church is said to have the largest clock tower, but we didn't find it to be that big and attractive like the Fraumuster's clock tower.
