Parting Photos of Zurich, Switzerland (May 30-June 1, 2008)

More photos from my previous visit to Zurich are available at:
Zurich, Switzerland (May 18-19, 2008)

The view of Zurich's west bank from across the Limmat River. The towers in the photo belong to St. Peters Kirche (right) and Fraumunster (left).
The view across the Musterbridge to the imposing Grossmunster church, where Ulrich Zwingli preached the Reformation in the 16th century. In accordance with reformist principles, the church (which has foundations dating back to the 8th century) was stripped of its decor, leaving the interior nearly bare.
Elegant buildings line the shores of the sunny Zurichsee Lake
St. Peters Kirche, an 18th century church built on the foundations of a 9th century structure. The clockface on the church tower is the largest in Europe, at 8.7m diameter.

Chocolates on display at the Banhofstrasse, Zurich's upscale shopping street. Several Swiss banks are also headquarted on Banhofstrasse.
