On the hour...

Try to arrive just before the hour as the small characters will come out at the strike. This is an attractive and very popular sight at the entrance to the Old Town.

Fantastic clock in Switzerland
Jan 2020
In the country that invent the time to sale their wonderful Rolex and Omegas, you will be let jaw opened by that middle age clock at the heart of the city of Bern, and if you are patient, just wait till the clock hour is announced. It is a wonderful show.

Beautiful, complex clock situated in the old town area of Bern. We expected a bit more of the moving figurines, but it was still entertaining.

Amazing clock tower
Sep 2020
Very interesting medieval clock tower with an extremely complex clock, which also has an astronomical part. During my visit at 12 o'clock without 5 minutes, the small figures to the right of the clock were also moving

Zytglogge, great clock tower
Feb 2020
Is there any better place to set your watch then a visit to this historic clock tower, Zytglogge. Pick a great day to stroll the streets of Switzerland's capital city, Bern.

Underwhelming for me
Oct 2019
This was a bit of a letdown for me. Maybe I was expecting too much. I definitely wouldn't put it on your "must-do" list but if you are in Bern you will probably be walking in the area so it is easy to get a few pictures and wait for the bell to ring. Don't be upset if you miss it though. You won't lose any sleep!

Very famous clock tower
Dec 2019
My wife, son, daughter and I saw the Clock Tower - Zytglogge. It is a great photo op. The Clock Tower - Zytglogge is located on the dividing line between Bern's new town and old town. Bern is full of clock towers and fountains. I wish I had had more time to walk around all the clock towers and fountains more carefully.
