Bern is famous for this Clock Tower. Totally amazing and words can not do it justice. Must see it in person. Nothing was disliked in Switzerland!

Nice little moving music on one side of tower- reminiscent but not as nice as the ones in Germany and the astronomical clock a poor cousin to the one in Prague. If you've never seen the others, you'll probably enjoy these

Interesting clock, but the noontime ringing didn't impress me. If you're in the area, swing by, but don't rush to the Old Town for this. Other European cities such as Munich, have more impressive clock "shows."

This is one of the Old Town's iconic landmarks and is definitely worth a peek whilst meandering through the cobbled streets. It just adds to the entire atmosphere and ambience of the bustling streets with their boutiques, cafes and people (locals & tourists alike).

Amazing to see how well preserved such an ancient clock is. Some of the chimes appear to be a bit out of sync, and begin at 3 minutes before the hour, but still well worth seeing if you find yourself in Bern's old town (which is a must if visiting Bern)
