St. Peter's Cathedral in Zurich is located in the centre of Zurich, the Swiss financial center. It is the oldest church in Zurich. The Church Tower, built in 1534, has the largest church clock dial in Europe. The dial diameter of the clock is 8.7 meters, the hour hand is 3 meters long and the minute hand is 4 meters long. This church tower is used to monitor fires. It is said that once a fire alarm occurs, a flag is stretched in the direction of the fire to tell people where to put out the fire. It is similar to the beacon tower in ancient China. Zurich Cathedral, Notre Dame Cathedral and St. Peter Cathedral are the three main churches in Zurich. St. Peter's Church is not far from Lake Zurich. It is opposite the Limat River from the end of Lake Zurich, which is separated from Notre Dame's Cathedral.

One of Zurich's three cathedrals, just north of Notre Dame's Cathedral, is located in the middle of a small square and many roads lead to the cathedral, including the famous Augustine Road, although there are no other two churches adjacent to the Limat River. It seems that St. Peter is the only one of the three churches allowed to take pictures.

St. Peter's Cathedral is on the side of St. Peter's Square. There are always many people in the queue. We took more than half an hour to get in. Church can climb the top, which can be divided into stairs and elevators. Tickets are different, but no matter what kind of ticket, they still need to climb more than 300 steps by themselves. However, compared with the scenery after climbing the top, the cost of tickets and physical strength are very worthwhile.

Its disk diameter is 8.7 meters, the hour hand is 3 meters long and the minute needle is 4 meters long. It is the largest church clock in Europe and an obvious landmark in Zurich. Without going to the church, you can see the bell of the church bell tower on the bridge.
Although St. Peter's Cathedral is not as magnificent as other churches, its long history and geographical location in the city make it unique. Although it can't enter the cathedral because of a wedding held on the day of the visit, its appearance is still amazing. It is also for this reason that we have the privilege to witness a grand wedding here.
