Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bern Mittelland District / Bern / The Cathedral of Bern
Rising over the old town, The Cathedral of Bern stands as the tallest cathedral in Switzerland. The structure's crowning feature is its 100.6 m (330 ft) tower, which affords views of the Alps on a clear day from the top. To get there, you'll need to climb about 350 steep stone steps, which take you past the original church bells. Built in 1421, today the Gothic cathedral is a Cultural Property of National Significance. Pay the small entrance fee to visit the tower, or enjoy a free cathedral tour of the main area.

Do you like Harry Potter? Well, then welcome to Hogwarts. The Cathedral has such a great charm, personality and style that it looks like a movie location, and in many corners and details I ensure you'll believe to almost see Harry and his friends, or Silente entering his office. Windows are finely decorated, you'll find different styles and pieces of art, but the central area (around the baptisms place) is pure pure magic. Do you need more? Well, the park next to the church is one of the nicest areas of the whole city, for some relaxation on the grass and an amazing view of the river and surroundings.
Intensely beautiful. Totally mesmerised by the architecture, stain glass art and the energies the cathedral bathed me with. What intricacy in the art work!! Fabulous!
