To be honest if you visit Izmir, there is no way that you will leave town without seeing it either if you are with a tour or if you are solo. There is not much to see actually. Shortly, it is built by Raymond Charles Pére in 1901 as a present from German emperor Wilhelm 2. It is said that... More

The clock tower is of local historical interest and is in the middle (more or less) of a square that is surrounded by shops selling lovely Turkish sweets...the whole area is quite pleasant though busy...

With the hundreds of pigeons in the square it reminded me of Picadilly Circus in London. Nice place by the sea to just sit and watch the crowds.

Clock tower itself is quite usual and don't makes you feel like it's some ancient and significant thing. On the other hand, area around clock is well-performed. There are a lot of benches, park, some sculptures. As elswhere in Izmir there are not so many tourists, so you may observe a kind of local lifestyle here.

The tower is in the centre of the city very close to loads of souvenir shops and of course Izmir old bazaar. you can visit all this area in a half day. I liked the tower itself as it was built by Eiffel the french architect.

The clock tower in Konak Square is used on almost every t-shirt, postcard, keyring etc from the city. It is not possible to enter but the square surrounding it is great for people watching. Read the tourist guides for the history of the tower.
