What people are saying:

The Bernese Clock Tower, a masterpiece of the Swiss watchmaking industry, is the most important landmark of Bern. Under the towering green spire, a bronze bell with a diameter of 127 cm and a weight of 1,400 kg is placed. The front of the clock tower is decorated with two clocks of different sizes. In the niche on the side of the small clock face below, there are two small bronze bells, the bell ringer, the god of time-Hans, and gold. Dolls, golden roosters, and a row of bears are lifelike, vivid and interesting. Every 5 to 10 minutes before the hour is the busiest time of the clock tower. Bustling tourists gathered in front of the clock tower to watch the "timekeeping doll show." Just after 57 points, the show started. Next to the big bronze bell ~ the bell ringer who revolved out began to ring the bell to tell the time on the hour. In the niche ~ the god of time flips the hourglass, the dolls are jumping for joy, the golden rooster spreads its wings and screams, and the bears parade together to welcome the arrival of the new moment. After the bell rang, the tourists left one after another.
