  • This tower has wonderful architecture. You can’t miss it as you enter the Old Town. Definitely worth a look. There was some construction being done on it when we were there in Nov. still nice though.

  • A beautiful historic building. It is a pity that we got at the moment when the repair work is being done. But it was still interesting to see the ancient architecture and clocks. If you are in Bern, be sure to visit this place.
  • Buildings are amazing and kept in such great condition
