Bern's silver treasure

Bern's silver treasure

Marvel at the splendour and magnificence of Bern’s silver treasure and let yourself be enthralled by the imaginative and detailed craftsmanship.

Taking up some 30 m² the exhibition presents 90 gold and silver works of art dating from the 16th to 18th centuries. Arranged by subject you will see lavish vessels from the Bernese guilds, societies and burgher associations. The goblets, figurative drinking vessels and testimonials from the Renaissance and Baroque periods offer an account of important events in the political, social and economic life of Bern.

Some of these permanent loans are still used by their owners on special occasions to this day. In terms of its size and quality our silver treasure is a collection of European importance.
