What people are saying about Bern

A good look inside one of Bern's historical landmarks.

This tour gives you an up close look at the workings of a 500 year old clock. The climb up the inside of the tower is a little strenuous and not wheel chair accessible, but my 8 year old daughter and a person recovering from knee surgery made the ascent with no problem. The views of the old city from the top are worth the climb. Anyone who is interested in clocks and time pieces will enjoy seeing the mechanism in action. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English (and undoubtedly spoke German as well). I thouroughly enjoyed the experience, and would recommend the tour to anyone interested in clocks and historic buildings.

Fun and informative tour on Bern's Zytglogge

Interesting and informational behind the scenes look at Bern, Switzerland's iconic clock in the old city. You'll get a history lesson on the city, and the clock tower, as they go through their constructive history. In addition, you'll get to see the clock mechanism and its functionality. Be aware that to access the clock, stairs are the only way and some of it are narrow and steep. But it was fun and informative tour if you have an hour to spend in Bern.

An interesting, informative history of what we saw on our stroll

It is always much more interesting when one knows the story behind what one is looking at in an historic city like Bern. Our guide, Ursula, explained everything in a very clear, well-modulated speaking manner and her interest in what she was telling us, made us interested too. She did a good job and our experience heightened the pleasure of our visit. Thank you.

The MOST accsessable into medival horology for anybody,yet entetaining

The BEST guided tour on medival horology and astronomical clocks available at any of the surviving specimens. Better done than comparable lectures/demos in Strassbourg, Praha, Strahlsund, Olomuk, etc. Thank you Zytrichter Marti and his team Scollarly accurate, yet entertaining.

We thoroughly enjoyed our informative tour of Zytglogge Clock Towe

Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and explained in great detail the way this amazing clock worked. You should know there are winding stairs and steps like ladders, but we were able to do this climb. The city views at the top made it all worthwhile. I highly recommend making a reservation for this tour!
