Switzerland: Zytglogge in Bern

On Wednesday I got five postcards from Switzerland.

One of them shows the Zytglogge in Bern. Bern is the capital of the Swiss Canton of Bern and as Federal City also capital of Switzerland. It is also the fourth largest city of Switzerland. The Zytglogge is a medieval tower in Bern's Old City. It was built in the 13th century and was used as guard tower, prison and clock tower. In the 15th century an astronomical clock was added to the tower. It is one of Bern's most famous sights. The Old City of Bern is since 1983 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With a great stamp:

Thank You very much Madeleine!
