Intro

A visit to the first western city gate (1218–1256) of Bern’s Old Town.

The 13th-century tower, a remnant of the first city wall, greets you in all its majesty. For over 600 years, the bell has been faithfully ringing in the hours. But in its interior, time seems to be standing still.

The faithful ticking of the medieval movement is your constant companion. The approximately 130 steps of the spiral staircase (some of which are quite worn) lead up to the observation platform which offers the best view over the roofs of the Old Town, stretching all the way to the Alps.

Together we’ll view the clockwork and follow the performance of the clockwork figures step for step, all the way to the famous third crow of the rooster. Join us for this unforgettable experience.

A model of the clock tower made from clay can be ordered on www.tonhaus.ch. It can be used as a light and scent house.

Guided tour of the Zytglogge (Bern's Clock Tower)


Visitors can admire the clockwork in groups and follow the movement of carillon figurines up to the third cock’s crowe.
