Excursions to Zytgloggeturm Bell Tower are popular among generations of travellers. The tower was built in the beginning of the 12th century. Originally it was a part of a large fortification complex, and today the tower is considered the symbolic entrance to the Old City. Visitors will see the famous clock of Kasper Brunner on the facade of the bell tower. The clock has become a symbol of the city. In addition to time the clock shows the day of week and month, the phase of the moon and zodiac sign. The clock is decorated with figures of animals. When a new hour starts, a cock alerts about this.
Suburban areas of Interlaken also house many interesting excursion sites. Among them you will find Museum of Rural Life (Freilichtmuseum), which accepts visitors during warm season. This is a large museum complex in the open air located in the small village of Ballenberg. It includes homes, farms and other buildings that were built several centuries ago. Visitors will also find antique shops and farmlands here. The museum’s staff regularly organizes interesting presentations for visitors.
