I love this Glockenspiel. Sit in one of the outdoor cafes and watch and listen to it. It glints, it moves, it chimes. Gorgeous

The show is seen from the courtyard and is free. I have seen many of these, and this one is cute and musically pleasant.

It only takes a few minutes, occurs often and is fun to watch. It is not hard to find and is near the other historic places.
