Clock Tower, Bern
Categories: Observation Decks, Landmarks, Tourist Spots
An elaborate structure with moving automatons, Clock Tower remains one of the capital city's major architectural landmarks, its spire a dominant point in the Old Town's skyline. Part of the city's World Heritage-listed medieval quarter, the 13th-century structure once served as both a prison and guard tower. Virtually unchanged since its contruction nearly eight centuries ago, the tower features a giant astronomical clock, its dial designed in the form of an astrolabe. Every hour on the hour there is an impressive display of early animatronic technology, involving the appearance of a gilded bell-striker representing the Greek personification of time.

Raphael JülichAlthough the clock tower station slightly grubby at the first glance, get the best burger (station Burger), the best chicken nuggets here (you have taste even really much after chicken), the best fries and the best cocktail sauce.
