The Swiss National Museum - part of the Musée Suisse Group - is one of the most important art museums of cultural history in Europe. It is located in the city of Zurich, Switzerland's largest city, next to the Hauptbahnhof.
According to legend, Charlemagne discovered the graves of the city's martyrs Felix and Regula and had a church built as a choristers' cloister on the spot. Construction work on the present building began around 1100.
Founded in 853 by King Louis the German, this church with its convent was inhabited by the female members of the aristocracy of Europe. The convent enjoyed the patronage of kings and the right to mint coins in Zürich until well into the 13th century. Important architectural features include the Romanesque choir and the high vaulted transept.
Zürich offers so many sights to see. A relaxed stroll through the city reveals something amazing at every corner: architectural highlights, historic squares, streets and districts, churches, works of art and much more.
