Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bern Mittelland District / Bern / Clock Tower - Zytglogge
An elaborate structure with moving automatons, Clock Tower - Zytglogge remains one of the capital city's major architectural landmarks, its spire a dominant point in the Old Town's skyline. Part of the city's World Heritage-listed medieval quarter, the 13th-century structure once served as both a prison and guard tower. Virtually unchanged since its contruction nearly eight centuries ago, the tower features a giant astronomical clock, its dial designed in the form of an astrolabe. Every hour on the hour there is an impressive display of early animatronic technology, involving the appearance of a gilded bell-striker representing the Greek personification of time. Our Bern trip planning site makes visiting Clock Tower - Zytglogge and other Bern attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
