The Beautiful Rose Filled Fountains of Zurich for Easter 2021
No Roses Without Thorns
An Initiative From the Churches of Zurich – 29th March – Easter Monday, 5th April
Seven Beautiful Rose Filled Fountains in Zurich
Have you seen the seven beautiful rose-filled fountains in Zurich yet? They have been on view in the city since 29th March and will remain in place until 5th April, Easter Monday.
These colourful and very artistic installations have very quickly become some of the most visited spots in the city! Popular with old and young alike, they have been flooding Instagram and Facebook feeds and really are a perfect match for the beautiful Spring weather we are experiencing right now.
An Initiative By The Reformierte Kirche Zurich
The rose filled fountains are an initiative by the Reformierte Kirche in Zurich, aiming to bring some colour and hope into people’s lives in this time of uncertainty. The church’s idea is to celebrate life this Spring with rose fountains, music and an evening blessing. It wants to emphasise that it offers a place of relief from the current stresses of everyday life and as well as offering church services throughout Holy Week and Easter, it is there for them outside of the church’s four walls.
The church also draws a parallel between link between “Corona” and the crown of thorns which Jesus bore. It points out that without thorns, there are no roses, just as without Good Friday there is no Easter!
The Meanings Behind The Fountains
There are seven fountains decorated with roses and the fountains themselves are a symbol of new life. The roses are a sign of joy, bringing colour into the darkness of the current situation and the thorns remind us that they are part and parcel of the situation we are in.
There are 7 locations where you can view these beautiful fountains :
At Münsterhof close to the Fraumünster church
At the top of Rennweg near the En Soie Shop
In Augustinergasse next to the Augustinerkirche and the Blumen Fitze Flower Shop
The small one inside the covered area at Helmhaus
At Zwingliplatz / Helferei
At Stüssihofstatt .
