Uniquely Curious

Which gods and goddesses did Zurich worship before the introduction of Christianity? How did our patron saints lose their heads and title? 

What role did a couple of sausages play in the Swiss religious Reformation during the 16th century CE? Where did the first Anabaptist martyrs in Zurich die and why? What about the milk soup that stopped a religious war? 

Was history kinder to the Jewish community in Zurich through the millennia? How did the ban on constructing further Minarets in Switzerland affect the Muslim community? 

You will discover the answer to these questions while exploring at a leisurely pace some of Zurich's religious landmarks, sacred places, and historical sites on your Religious Heritage Tour.

Wrapped Gift

Rumor 
has it !

I took the walking tour with Samantha with my family and really enjoyed it. We live in Ontario but I grew up in the Zürich area and know the city well. Wanted to show my adult kids the outer cracks of the old downtown with a slice of history attached. Samantha gave me exactly that in a fun way. Samantha is very professional, high-energy, knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend her.
