Bern’s Clock Tower (Zytglogge)

Together we’ll view the clockwork and follow the performance of the clockwork figures step for step, all the way to the famous third crow of the rooster. Join us for this unforgettable experience.

It is the landmark of the city of Bern: the Clock Tower (Zytglogge). On the hour, many people gather in front of the Clock Tower to watch the clock mechanism from the 16th century perform its unique spectacle.

On our tour, you can experience this spectacle from up close. From inside the Clock Tower, you can follow the clock’s movements step by step, from its mechanical figures to the cock’s famous third crow. On top of all that, you can enjoy the wonderful view over the capital’s streets and rooftops.
