Prison Tower

Heiliggeistkirche (Holy Spirit Church)

The Heiliggeistkirche was built by Niklaus Schiltknecht, the town's master mason, and inaugurated in 1729. It is located on the site of what was previously known as the hospital church. The Heiliggeistkirche is considered to be the most beautiful Protestant baroque church in Switzerland. Richly furnished, the interior is dominated by fourteen freestanding sandstone columns and the pulpit in the northern part of the nave.

Kubus

The layout comprises a 1200 m2 exhibition hall with an accessible roof terrace, a storage floor and office space for the "Bernisches Historisches Museum", as well as offices and a library with reading room for the city archives. The exhibition hall is sunk into the ground and the space on the roof is accessible from the park and from the entrance hall. Towards the back, the office building is enclosed in a castellated way. Steps lead up to the roof of the exhibition hall.

This extension to the "Bernisches Historisches Museum" (Historical Museum) is sure to amaze with its exhibition hall sunk into the ground and its significant extension programme.
