The Tower’s Hour



Immortalized by German Expressionist painter and print-maker Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, the Zytglogge Tower is a famous landmark in Bern, Switzerland.

This 13th Century structure is now a popular tourist attraction, although it has been used as a clock tower, guard station, and prison. 

The Zytglogge Tower contains an astronomical clock as well, constructed in the 15th Century, and a working glockenspiel.
