Cathedral At Munsterplatz, Bern Reviews - Write a Review
Cathedral of Bern is a beautiful structure inside and outside , however if you have seen similar monuments in other parts of Europe this is not going to blow you away in terms of architecture or anything else. If you are in Bern and have some time definitely worth checking it once.
As everyone else says, the Cathedral is absolutely beautiful and powerful with its imagery. The best part is easily the Bell tower. Not only is the view spectacular, but of you descend to the room holding the bells at 12:00PM you will get stand right next to their second biggest bell (6760kg) ringing for 5 minutes. Sadly the don't seem to ring the largest bell anymore(it's over 10000kg). Keep an eye out for the constant renovation work as well.
Great and beautiful church! Recommanding taking a tour to the tower. Not for the faint of heart 😊
Beautiful cathedral with wonderful views of the old city of Bern. You climb up 220 stairs to get to the first level which gives panoramic views of the city. You can go a further 90 steps up to go to the highest level, and probably the highest point in Bern. If you go here at about sunset, the views would be spectacular!
Cathedral is beautifully and well decorated, even outside. Climb in the tower, view is splendid on the historic part of bern and it's surroundings
