The cllock is very similar to the one in the city square of Prague. Impressive in itself but not nearly as ornate as the one in Prague

Buy tickets for 3 Eur in the church before to avoid queing .Entrance after 11.30,Movie shown on a screen next to the huge horloge 12.00 to 12.25.Very instructive and interesting.12.30 about 3 min clock in action.Only downside:no seats at the screen.Still recommended .

Firstly the clock is currently under repair. Secondly if the clock is under repair, they should also close down the machine that asks for 0.2 euros to illuminate the clock. The machine is situated very near the medallion souvenir and in my lack of understanding,...More

Now I know reviews are subjective and what one person likes another person might not but come on folks how could you rate this a 5, or even a 4, 3 or a 2. Let me explain. I had read that you could buy tickets...More

The builders of these clocks and mechanisms do not receive the fame that they deserve. It is mind blowing that they could not only understand but also reproduce the planets movement with the (very) limited technology of the time. The introductory movie is well done...More
