Visit the Zytglogge, the famous clock tower, and experience a tour of the first Western city gate (1218 - 1256) in Bern's old city. Visit the clockwork and follow a puppet show step by step.
What to Expect
Conceived in the 1300s, the clock tower is one of the remainders of Bern's first city walls. For over 600 years, the clock has struck on the hour. Inside, time seems to stand still and cool solitude awaits.
The reliable ticks of the Middle Age technology impart a steadiness to visitors. Approximately 130 steps to the top of the spiral staircase lead you to a lookout platform. From here, see the roofs of the old city and maybe even the Alps.
Visit the clockwork with your guide and follow the puppet show step by step until the famous rooster crows.
