Arguably the most famous clock tower in Swiss. Famous for the mechanical show which performed at 5 pm.

We visited here on the last day of our trip to Switzerland, was somewhat underwhelmed... maybe it was down to bad timing?... clock tower was covered in scaffolding and workers buzzing around it

The history behind the clock tower is a good read for history lovers. We traveled to Bern on the way to Zurich Airport to see this clock tower as recommended by my relatives. But I was not very impressed with it.

Unfortunately when I was there, workers were busy working. Disappointed as I was unable to get a good picture with all the scaffolding around it.
