Background: The late-Gothic Das Munster is the highest in Switzerland. The first chapel on the site recorded in 1224 dated from the founding of the city. In 1421, Matthäus Ensinger started construction on the new minster using the greenish local sandstone. Work continued according to his original plans, and was completed in 1893 with the addition of the spire.
