Zurich: Old Town: W part — a hill overlooking the river

The west bank of the river Limmat rises steeply to the Lindenhof hill, where Zurich had its origins in the form of a Celtic settlement and then a Roman fort. Two churches tower here above the house line – St. Peter with an impressive clock face of almost 9 meters in diameter (but well, this is Zurich – a city famous for its watchmaking profession), and the St. Mary’s Church, famous mainly for its stained glass windows by Chagall. However, I decided against seeing them, because to see them you had to stand in a long line and pay a considerable entrance fee (eh, Zurich).
