good. very scenic except for the crowds when the clock strikes on the hour .... then its 'packed in time'. lots of street entertainers but well known for pick-pockets, strong police presence

This clock is not to be missed. It is the oldest clock like this in Europe. It goes off every hour from 9 am to 11 pm. The astronomical clock has revolving figures that shows the sun and the moon position. If you love clocks be sure not to miss this one.

It is fascinating to know that such a thing was built thousands of years ago when mathematics was fairly new. Interesting place. Every time the clock stikes an hour its a must see at that point.

Located right in the center of Old Town, this attraction is a wonder. Easy to find during any walking tour of the old central core of the city. A must see.

We were waiting for 20 minutes in order to see few characters moving from far away. really? The building itself is more interesting than the clock, actually.

Yes, it´s worth seeing and a mechanical miracle. However, the clockwork spectacle on the full hour lasts 18 seconds. Debateable whether it´s worth to stand in the crowd for half an hour to get a good view.
