External guides can lead groups through the Fraumünster and the Grossmünster (in the Fraumünster with accreditation only). However, a group can also visit the church without any guide. Should the church be overcrowded, a tour for unregistered groups cannot be guaranteed. We therefore recommend that you register your group at least 2 weeks before the visit.

How big is a group?

What about the noise?
External guides must use «wisper technology» (audio set) to avoid disturbing other visitors. Upon request, we provide an audio set to all participants.
Who may guide a group visit?
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). Currently, such accreditation is only provided in German.
Currently, accreditation seminars are held in German only. You can register by e-mail for an accreditation course. You will receive an invitation as soon as the next course date is fixed (usually in spring). The course takes 2–3 hours. Upon completion, you will receive your personal accreditation permit required to guide groups through the Fraumünster.
