Well of course the Zytglogge is a very interesting building ,but if by chance you stay in Bern after ash Wednesday ,you can experience the" Bern Fasenacht."
This is a big big block party ,which happens in the old town.
Many bands are playing ,plenty of kids in fantastic costumes around ( not only Dumbledors) and a heck lot of fun.
Of course there are food stands etc.
This event is over 3 days with the most busy day on Saturday.
For the very conservative people from Bern ,this is the time for fun and food.
Do not miss the Muenster Platz just beside this great church ..
So just relax walk the streets and have enjoy.

Located right in the center of the old town. Worth a few minutes to see this beautiful old clock tower.

Doing my research what to do in Bern, clock was high on the list. However once you are there you keep on waiting to be impressed but sadly you are not.

Ok for quick photo as it’s a a nice historical clock and historical buildings around it but you move on very quickly. Most people on hate red around for a few minutes and left.

This is a very famous and historic building in Bern and it is very pretty. However,the revolving figures are very underwhelming so don't come especially to see them.

In the delightful Old Town arcaded street is an enchanting symbol of the city. First saw it evening time when it was bathed in the golden sunlight.

It began life in the early 1200s and has had numerous functions down the centuries. Clock faces including an astronomical clock are standout features.

Arrived 'just on time' - but the spectacle was rather modest, sorry to say that.
Learned later that there is actually some activity happening a few minutes before the hour, but also this did not really meet our expectations.

Not much to do but marvel at its beauty. Intricately designed. Easy to walk by - allot no more than 5-10 min as there's not much more to see.

It’s worth timing your visit to see the clock in action on the hour. It was a unique experience and one we were glad to get to see in person!
