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. The three-aisled basilica without a transept towers above the roofs of the old town.
