Overview
A visit to the first western city gate (1218–1256) of Bern’s Old Town. See the inside of this famous tower and its clockwork
What to Expect
The 13th-century tower, a remnant of the first city wall, greets you in all its majesty. For over 600 years, the bell has been faithfully ringing in the hours. But in its interior, time seems to be standing still. Coolness and calm await you.

The faithful ticking of the medieval movement is your constant companion. The approximately 130 steps of the spiral staircase (some of which are quite worn) lead up to the observation platform. From here you can enjoy a view over the roofs of the Old Town, stretching all the way to the Alps in good weather.

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.
