This cathedral is 100ft high and is visible from far. If you love architecture you will love this place. A part of it was under renovation during our visit. The stain glass work on the window is out of the world. The church is huge and if you want to climb up, you need to purchase a ticket. Need at... More

The cathedral is quite special in terms of the drawings and their stories behind. It is worth have a look when passing by.

It is not only the cathedral but also the environment that makes this place good to visit. The river flowing nearby, the nice cafe where you have your caffe latte, the green benches wher one can see the world go by.

Well, site seeing is not really my thing. If you are one of those people, you should go there as the architect is huge, unique and amazing. Even huge is small to describe such a church.

By the time I was in Bern could not see the interior because it was with works but is for sure a very beautiful and imposing building that deserves a visit!

We claimed the tower of Cathedral of muenster. 312 steps to the top. It was exhausting to climb the steps, but the view was amazing and unreal. It cost 5.00 swiss francs to enter.

Typical monumental Cathedral which we used as a compass when sightseeing around town:).They are doing some renovations in the altar part so you cannot really see the stained glass art in that part,but the ones on the side are really beautiful.Behind it there is a garden over looking the river and a nice panoramic views.

This definitely completed my visit to Bern. My husband and I walked up to the top if the tower and I even got a little spooked we were so high! It seems they are constantly doing renovations and repairs so it is nice to know it is maintained. It is also beautiful inside and I would have liked to have... More
