You think you know smart people in your life, then you encounter this amazing clock and you realize what real genius can do. It is well worth the visit -- and it requires a ticket. Go early to the gift shop to get one, then see the cathedral. When it's time to line up for the special clock session, get in line early so you can maneuver to a good spot where both the screen for the movie and the clock are in view. The film is outstanding, explains the inner workings of the clock, etc., in an entertaining way. A must see in Strasbourg.

This technological marvel is art and science in harmony. The clock movements reveal the human life cycle, the celestial changes, the seasons, oh, and the time. It is inside the Cathedral of Strasbourg.

The story of the clock is interesting, it is cool to look at, but the mobpvement of it was a little underwhelming.

you can only see this operate once a day. Be sure to be outside the door by 11h30, as it is Covid time, the numbers entering are limited. At noon there is a very interesting half hour long video, which ends as the clock goes into action. This is a must see....to think that 200 years later, the clock, which works mechanically, is still accurate.

The astrological clock inside the Cathedral is something to see. It may not be as good as the one in Prague bit it is still worth a visit.

This watch is simply amazing. 30 years of engineering have gone into it. If you want to see if over the weekend, make sure to go on Saturday at 11:30am as it can´t be visited on Sundays. Be on time and stand where you can see both the screen and the clock so you can get the best out of your visit. You can buy a Strassbourg city pass in the tourism office next to the cathedral. The visit to the clock and the cathedral´s roof (over 300 stairs) is included in the 22 Euros, among many other things.

The clock, located in the Cathedral, is amazing to see and, of course, the main feature is the procession of the figures that start to move at noon.

One of things you must see in Strasburg. Unique piece of engineering that masters watch movement and astronomy. Buy the tickets first in the church for a visit that allows you to see the 12:30 movement action. It’s the chance to ser the first “computer” built in 1840. Absolutely, amazing.
