5 Käfigturm Tower East Façade in Bern, Switzerland

The Käfigturm is one of two fortified towers in the Old City of Bern. The original was built for protection in 1256 and then replaced in 1643 with this one which is 161 feet tall. It has served as a watch tower, a prison, a government archive, an information center and today it is a meeting hall for a political group. However, its primary purpose is to charm the tourists with Medieval flare.
