The best views to be enjoyed far and wide are from the city’s oldest building, the Tour des Prisons.

As you climb the former prison tower, you pass a suffocating cell where wrongdoers eked out a wretched existence. Soon after, however, you enjoy the liberating, boundless views stretching over the Old Town, the lake, and to the highest Alpine summits. A panoramic picture on the platform identifies all the peaks on the horizon.

Information

  • Make sure you have a CHF 2.- coin for the turnstile.
  • The tower has many steep steps.
