Nestled in Bern’s Old Town, this is Switzerland’s largest religious building and country’s tallest tower.
200 years before construction began, it was already a religious site with a small chapel. This was replaced by a larger church, which, in 1421, remained but was built around, making the cathedral we see now. Building finished with the completion of the 100m-high tower in 1893, the top of which is a 312-step climb. Main features include the depiction of the Last judgement (the only image that survived the Reformation), stained-glass windows, frescos and Switzerland’s largest bell.
