The church of Bel Taimpel is an impressive baroque structure with triple vaulting. The side walls are decorated with false pillars adorned with Ionic capitals. The most unusual feature of this church is the cockerel on top of the tower. Most Protestant churches in Switzerland have a cockerel on their spire - but ours can flap its wings. A special mechanism inside can be activated by means of a wire that leads down almost as far as the bell. When this wire is pulled, the cockerel flaps his wings. He can be seen in action at the following times:

Daily in winter at 8.00am / 12.00pm / 4.00pm and in summer at 6.00am / 12.00pm / 6.00pm
