Description 

Summary

Time moves forward it's a fact but for the Zytglogge, one of Bern’s most important landmarks, time puts you in a trance – taking you through its 800-year-old historical legacy with every pendulum swing. To fully appreciate the value of Bern's iconic timepiece, you need to look back into the medieval era where it began as a defence tower and women's prison before serving its purpose as an astronomical clock. Today, the Zytglogge does more than tell the time. It has become a symbol of Bern.

During this Clock Tower tour, you’ll get behind the scenes look at the operation of the iconic timepiece. You’ll witness the spectacle up close and watch the movements step by step, all the way to the incredibly famous third crow of the rooster. You’ll see its revolving figures twirl four minutes before the hour while enjoying the wonderful view of the capital’s remarkable landscapes. It's said that the hourly elaborate show helped the genius Albert Einstein developed his theory of relativity while working in a patent office in Bern.
