Käfigturm - Polit-Forum Bern

The living political forum of the Confederation

Since 1st July 2017, the new founded body “Polit-Forum Bern” is running the political forum in the Prison Tower. After a summer break, the political forum reopens on 15th September for the public with limited opening hours from 1 pm to 6 pm, Tuesday to Friday, until the end of 2017. There are no exhibitions scheduled for the second half of 2017. However, a visit to this centre for political education is always worthwhile as extensive documentation explain the political system of Switzerland.
