Cathedral At Munsterplatz - Review
The Cathedral of Bern as it’s popularly called is Switzerland’s biggest and oldest cathedral from the Late Middle Ages. A magnificent church you should not miss out on, don’t miss out on the huge stained glass window masterpiece, the most popular one being the Dance of Death.
There are two highlights of the Bern Cathedral- the depiction of the Last Judgment, with over 200 figures above the altar. The second highlight of the Munster is the 100 meters church tower that stands tall and dictates the Bern skyline. Beautiful vistas of Bern await all those brave enough to conquer the 270 steps it takes to scale the tower.

Cathedral At Munsterplatz, Bern Reviews
A must see if you visit Bern, I have been here a few times, and still enjoy seeing this cathedral. It is free to enter, and with very limited parking, I recommend taking train to get here. While it is free to enter I highly recommend paying to climb the stair cases to the tower walkways. It gives a great view of Bern and surrounding area. On the staircase down they will sometimes have the bell room opening and you can see the various different bell sizes too.
The detail is mind-blowing. It's such a beautiful cathedral. The sounds during a wedding are amazing. You must stop by if in Bern.
Someone was playing large organ in the evening right when I visited. Looked like it was a training, not a finished musical piece, but it was really charming. Sound is great, very powerful, and helps to feel the mood of the cathedral.
When l was there the first time Cathedral closed for repairs also l watched the filming on crupption in the government the second l did see the beautiful cathedral
Beautiful and delicate Gothic cathedral. You can enter inside for free of charge. You need to pay to go to the top of this cathedral. The park next to this cathedral has a very nice view.
