Bern Minster, also known as Bern Cathedral or St Vincent Cathedral, is the largest and most important ecclesiastical building in Switzerland. You can see Bern Minster standing from a great distance and it adds character to the old town. Construction began in 1421 and took centuries before the church was fully finished. The spire was not completed until 1893.
The Cathedral consists of beautiful stained-glass windows and inside you can marvel at the many Gothic images. Through a staircase with 344 steps, you will reach the top of the tower. Once at the top, you will be well rewarded. From the top point of this gothic cathedral, you have a great view of the old town and, if you are lucky, the snow-capped mountain peaks of Bernese Oberland. Highly recommended!
