Two-Month Closure Planned for the Bern Switzerland Temple

The Bern Switzerland Temple will close this year from approximately mid-May to mid-July for some work to the exterior. The nearly 65-year-old building was the first temple to be constructed in Europe, having been dedicated in 1955 by President David O. McKay. Once work has concluded, the temple will reopen for ordinance work. No rededication is required.
