Church
“We always take our guests to climb the stairs of the cathedral to admire the 360º view of Geneva. Extrait from Know-it-all passport®: 12th century structure includes an eclectic mix of styles. It is best known as the adopted home church of John Calvin, one of the leaders of the Protestant Reformation. Inside the church is a wooden chair used by Calvin. Note: Fantastic 360° view of Geneva and surrounding mountains from the top. Climb up the 153 stairs, revel in the magnificent views along the way and discover the inner workings of this historical landmark. If you can stand loud noises, then make sure you are at the top on the hour so you can hear at close-hand the bells ring. There are 2 towers, North and South. Note: Please respect the red light/green light system on some of the narrow spiral stairs that allow traffic flow with a one-way system. Price to climb up the tower: Fr. 5.-/adult, Fr. 2.-/child age 6-16. Open October through May 10h-17h30 (Sunday from 12h), June through September 9h30-18h30, Saturday till 17h, Sunday 12h-18h30.”

“The cathedral is symbol of Fribourg. A jewel of Gothic architecture, it was built between 1283 and 1490. It is very rich decorated cathedral with stained glasses created by the Polish painter Jozef Mehoffer. If you want to have a top view of Fribourg 360°, you can climb to top of the cathedral ( 365 steps, and 5 chf as I remember)”

Church
“Eglise classé monument historique qui doit sa célébrité à sa décoration, réalisée par les plus grands artistes de l’époque. Elle est considérée comme l’édifice clé du renouveau de l’art sacré au xxe siècle. Au moment de sa consécration, en 1950, cette église résolument tournée vers l’art moderne choqua une partie traditionaliste du clergé français, accoutumée à plus de classicisme.”
