We happened to be at the right time at this market place and watched the figures taking their round at 12 noon. Quite nice but nothing really exciting - good for kids, I suppose

The Glockenspiel goes off 3 times a day in the Main Square. Whilst it's pretty tame for the 21st Century it harks back to simpler times, when this was cutting edge technology. Well worth a look in this UNESCO World Heritage Town.

We loved it!! It's cute. It's old. It's fun. You can not stop singing with it. And you can not take your eyes away. 10 minuets every hour (almost) of sheer fun. The best thing in Goslar.

For all who like these extended ’jacquemarts’ this is a nice one. Make sure you have a nice spot, and wait for all three acts.
