The Bern Münster Cathedral is the largest religious building in Switzerland. Construction started in 1421 with builders working on this masterpiece over successive generations. The steeple was only completed in 1893.

An outstanding feature is the main portal, where you can admire the depiction of the Last judgment - the only image that was spared the iconoclasm of the Reformation. 344 steps above the entrance gets you to the lookout point: the 100-meter-high cathedral tower.

From this highest church tower in Switzerland you may admire the magnificent view over the city and well into the Bernese Mittelland, and of the snow-covered mountains of the Bernese Oberland.
