Intro

The Zytglogge (clock tower): Visit the landmark of Bern's Old Town and experience the history and mechanics of the tower on a guided tour.

Every hour on the hour, a fascinating spectacle takes place in Bern: the medieval puppet show of the Zytglogge (clock tower) begins. The dancing bear train, the cheeky jester and the crowing rooster are a delight for young and old alike.

If you would like to know more about the significance of the statues, the mechanics and the history of the Zytglogge (clock tower), you can take part in the one-hour guided tour.

The tour is a special experience, and not just because of the unique atmosphere inside the tower. Time seems to have stood still here many years ago, while heavy wooden beams and solid stone walls take guests on a journey into the past. In the historic rooms, only the steady ticking of the medieval mechanism accompanies visitors through history.
