With "Heavy Susanna" in the tower

She really has many stories to tell: the tower warden Marie-Therese Lauper leads her guests up 254 steps to the highest church steeple in Switzerland, that of the Münster of Bern. However, she does take a break: There is a pause in the bell chamber, where "Heavy Susanna", the heaviest bell in Switzerland, sets the tone. And finally enjoy a breathtaking view over the rooftops of Bern at the top of the 101 meter high tower with a glass of hot spiced wine.

Schwellenmätteli

Restaurant Terrasse
The spacious outdoor area stretches out above the river, providing an arresting view of the Parliament Building and the Cathedral against the backdrop of the Old Town. The fish dishes and afternoon coffee and cake are highly recommended.

Ristorante Casa
At the edge of a gravel courtyard, a romantic garden frames the Ristorante Casa, a half-timbered house listed on the historic register. It once served as a sauna house and is now an ideal venue for casual Italian dining.

Event Lounge
With its large wall of windows, the Lounge looks out upon the currents of the Aare and the tree-lined gravel courtyard. The building is remarkably long, having once served as a bowling alley. It's a popular place among night owls.

The Schwellenmätteli – composed of the Terrasse, Casa and Event Lounge – lies right along the banks of the Aare and seems like its own island.
