Island, Quiet, Church
Ufnau Island is a wonderfully quiet place that has kept its uniqueness and unspoilt nature, withstanding the turmoils of time. In 965 AD, Emperor Otto the Great gave the island and other estates bordering Lake Zurich to the Benedictine Abbey of Einsiedeln. His wife, Empress Adelheid, was the grandchild of Reginlinde, the founder of the Ufnau church. We can assume that the Empress prompted her husband to make this donation.
