"Prison Tower" Old town Tip by aliante1981
Old town, Bern: 46 reviews and 95 photos
Prison Tower served as the second western city gate during the 1256 to 1344 year span. The present tower was erected later, during the 1641 to 1643 years as a prison and served this purpose until 1897. Though I must say it does not look quite like a prison: true, it has thick walls, but that?s about the only prison trait it has. Overall, I would say the tower is much too festive (with its turrets & clocks) to be a prison. Well, the more beautiful it looks, the better for us, tourists, true?
