Zytglogge - Berne clock tower

The east face

Tourists gather to hear the clock strike the hour. They're inevitably disappointed - despite all the grandeur and detail, the king just waves his wand and a little chicken spins round on a wheel! Forewarned is forearmed!
The west face

The neighbouring chemist (sign says Apotheke) is all lit up for Christmas
underneath the Zytglogge

post box and phone booths on the right, roasted chestnut stand on the left, and Kramgasse panning off in a slow curve down the hill towards the river

Yeah, I waited for several minutes, looking up all the time. That was it? Grrr...

I love Bern, though!
