Trip Planner: Europe / Switzerland / Canton of Bern / Bern Mittelland District / Bern / The Cathedral of Bern
Rising over the old town, The Cathedral of Bern stands as the tallest cathedral in Switzerland. The structure's crowning feature is its 100.6 m (330 ft) tower, which affords views of the Alps on a clear day from the top. To get there, you'll need to climb about 350 steep stone steps, which take you past the original church bells. Built in 1421, today the Gothic cathedral is a Cultural Property of National Significance. Pay the small entrance fee to visit the tower, or enjoy a free cathedral tour of the main area.

The Cathedral of Bern reviews
Just for faith, or for love of the architecture, the Munster Cathedral is a jewel to visit in Bern. Inside there is a "pietà" as beautiful as that one of Michelangelo more »
A large Protestant cathedral. Its tower can be seen from all over the city. The cathedral is currently undergoing a restoration process, and during our visit we could not see it well from the inside. more »
We were passing through Bern and we stopped for a quick visit in the old city. The cathedral is a really nice place to visit. It's the tallest cathedral in Switzerland, so if you happen to be nearby, you have to see it.
Super place! Was fun going to the top through the old towers. We went when the Christmas market was there so that was cool to see from above ! Was a fun day for sure with some nice sights !
