External guides

External guides must use «wisper technology» (audio set) from a group size of 5 people to avoid disturbing other visitors. They must bring their own audio sets for all participants. A short leaflet is included per person. For small groups of up to 10 people, an audio guide can be selected as an alternative (if available). Please specify the desired language when booking.

At Fraumünster, only accredited guides can give groups a tour through the church. To gain accreditation, a guide must visit a half-day course organised by the Reformierte Kirche Zürich (church district one).
↗ More information about the accreditation as a Fraumünster guide


Delays / no-show

After we confirmed a request for a tour, the booked time is binding and the full costs apply, even if the participants arrive late or fail to appear. If a group is delayed, the guide must be informed by telephone. The private tour will not be prolonged by the delay.

Cancellation conditions

If a group cancels a tour up to 10 days prior, 50 percent of the costs will be charged. Later cancellations will be fully charged. The same applies when a group fails to appear.

Postponement or cancellation by the church

In case the church is occupied at short notice (e.g. for a funeral), a tour can be cancelled or rescheduled. If the tour cannot be rescheduled, no charges apply.
