    The Church of St. Peter, together with the Grossmünster and the Fraumünster, shapes the skyline of Zurich's old town. What few people know when they stand in front of the Church of St. Peter, they see the largest church clock in Europe. The dial has a diameter of 8.64 meters.
    Zurich upgraded 200 years later. The St. Peter received the largest tower clock in Europe, a dial with a diameter of 8.64 meters on each side of the tower. The time on the clock at St. Peter became the official city time. All clocks had to be based on St. Peter until the 20th century. Today, the watch has lost importance in this regard. Only at Sechseläuten is it leading the way. When it strikes 6 p.m. in the evening at St. Peter, the "Böögg" is lit and burned on Sechseläutenplatz on Bellevue.
