Bern Cathedral

This is the city's most impressive late-Gothic building. The three-aisled basilica towers above the roofs of the Old Town. The building was started in 1421. The vantage point of this masterpiece is located 344 steps above the entrance in the 100-meter-high cathedral spire (highest cathedral tower of Switzerland). One prominent feature is the portal, on which the depiction of the last judgment may be admired.

The Bern Münster Cathedral of St. Vincent is the most impressive late-Gothic building in the city and the largest and most important late medieval church in Switzerland. From this highest church tower in Switzerland you may admire the magnificent view over the city and of the snow-covered mountains of the Bernese Oberland.

Clock Tower (Zytglogge)

The Zytglogge (Clock Tower) was the city's first West Gate (1191 - 1256). The artistic astronomical calendar clock and the figure movement were created in 1530. These functioned as the city's main clock. Each day many visitors admire the hourly chimes and procession of the figures. Today the Zytglogge is one of the most important and most beautiful sights of Bern.

Bern’s unique cityscape – distinguished by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1983 – is shaped by the city’s cosmopolitan charm.
