Berner Münster, Bern

The Bern Minster is the tallest cathedral in Switzerland, with a height of 100.6 metres.

The Bern Minster is the tallest cathedral in Switzerland, with a height of 100.6 metres. The construction of the Gothic-style cathedral was started in 1421 and completed in 1893, interrupted by the Reformation. Highlights include the 15th century stained glass windows and 87 Gothic stone busts of saints in the 'Heavenly Court' vault of the choir, the Renaissance choir stalls of oak-wood, and the magnificent reliefs around the portals. The spire of the Swiss Reformation Cathedral has 312 steps leading up to the viewing balcony, which offers panoramic views over the city and Alps all the way to Jungfrau.
