Kirche Enge, Zurich
See the beauty of baroque at Kirche Enge, a late 19th-century church filled with impressive decor. Enter to admire the carefully painted stained glass windows and the large pipe organ at the altar. The mixture of wood and marble ornaments complements the brightly colored dome depicting Biblical imagery. Take a seat on one of the long wooden benches, or climb to the top level to admire the view of the surrounding landscape. With its excellent acoustics, the church regularly hosts concerts; check the schedule of events on the website.

Although the Church itself is not special (built in the late 19th century due to the large growth of the district), the visit is very interesting (you step onto the dome and Bell Tower with a beautiful view).
I think it is the most beautiful church I have ever seen. I love that it was open and I walked in and just sat and prayed with no one there.
I locate this church when I was traveling via boat to Zurich. Nearest tram station is ENGE. You have rail station also with same name. I could not enter church however went around. 15 minutes would be enough to go nearby. Nearby area is good for a walk
