Zurich often basks in the dazzling Swiss sunlight, and when it is shining on the Fraumunster church in the Old Town one of the most remarkable sights in the city is brought to life. The Chagall Windows are a stained-glass masterpiece created by one of the 20th century's most noted artists, Paul Chagall.
The Chagall Windows are one of the most compelling attractions in Switzerland and guests at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Zurich Airport will thoroughly enjoy experiencing the sight. This superior hotel in Zurich is within minutes of the excellent transport links that can take visitors directly to the centre of the city, and its alluring attractions.
A striking sight
In a city where many of the best attractions are reminders of the distant medieval past, the Chagall Windows are a vibrant testament to the colour and energy of modernity. Russian-born Chagall was already a renowned artist and master of stained glass windows in 1967 when he was invited to create something new for five empty windows in the Fraumunster.
He came up with works of startling originality, each telling a different biblical story in vivid colours. As light streams through these windows the striking images contained within them are brought to vivid life. Reds, greens, blues and yellows shine out from the Chagall Windows in an incredible testament to the artistic vision of their creator.
The layout of Zurich makes it an excellent city to visit, whether on business or for leisure. This is largely thanks to the close proximity of many of the city's finest attractions, which allows tourists to see some of the best sights within a short space of time. Visitors can appreciate the beauty of the Chagall windows one moment, then minutes later find themselves browsing some of the most exclusive shops in the world on the Bahnhofstrasse.
After spending time appreciating the Chagall Windows and some of Zurich's other premier sites guests at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Zurich Airport can be assured of a relaxing and stylish environment in which to unwind. The comfortable rooms and high quality service are the perfect complement to a stay in the city.
