"Astronomical Clock Tower - Zytglogge" Clock Tower Tip by Mikebb
Clock Tower, Bern: 30 reviews and 52 photos
Walking along the Old Town streets you can see and hear the clock. A masterpiece of craftmanship it dominates from the top end of a very beautiful street.
The astronomical clock was first mentioned in the city accounts of 1444 when it had to be repainted. It therefore dates from the early 15th century and presumably belonged to the first original move-ment (soon after 1405). The clock tower has 6 floors, although we did not enter the web link (Virtual Tour) has photos.
Well worth being in front of the clock on the hour!
Directions: Old Town, Bern city centre.
