Hailing from the East of France, Bernard Tischner joined the Sochaux Academy set-up in 1974, but his experience at the club was short-lived, as he was not retained by the club. In 1976, he was spotted by Strasbourg, but once more, never got many opportunities to play for the First Team during his three seasons in the Alsace region. He did still achieve a Second Division title in 1977, and even finished with a French Champions medal in 1979, albeit he only made two appearances that season. Looking for some more gametime, he departed Strasbourg to sign for Thionville in the Second Division in 1979, and there he finally made the breakthrough into the First Team, staying for two seasons. In 1981, he joined Stade Rennais, who were looking to return to top flight football. As a first Team regular, he played at the heart of the defence in his first two seasons at the club, winning the French Division Two title in 1983. He would eventually leave the club at the end of the catastrophic 1983/1984 season for the club, finishing bottom of the league in the top flight. He left Rennes for Montpellier, where he would spend the next three seasons of his career. Initially in the Second Division, he helped his team obtain promotion after securing the Second Division title in 1987; Despite helping Montpellier to promotion, he left to sign for Entente Melun Fontainebleau, who had just achieved promotion to Second tier of French football, and spent two seasons there (between 1987-1988).. In the following season, he headed off to Angoulême in the Third Division, for a season which would turn out to be his last as a professional footballer. After hanging up his boots as a player, he then went in to management in lower league football with several small amateur clubs.
