Dating back to the first century, St. Peter's is the only baroque church in Zurich. It is known for its tower clock face which is the largest in the whole of Europe with a diameter of 8.7 metres. The five bells in the tower dating back to 1880 are also of prime importance with one of them weighing over 6000 kgs, without clappers.
Known to be one of the prominent places to visit in Zurich, the church tower was also used as a fire lookout point from the Middle Ages to the year 1911. Theologians of the past worked here and the first mayor of Zurich was buried here, making this a historical attraction. His monument and grave can be visited along the outer tower wall.
