This is the Jewish town hall, which is rarely visited (it was not open to the public during our visit). The building features some lovely clocks and it is worth passing by it when you stroll in the Jewish quarter.

Keeping a watchful eye over Josefov is the tower of the Jewish Town Hall with its 2 distinctive clocks. It’s a picturesque site of the Jewish Town Hall, a building that sits on a busy intersection that contains historic synagogues and the Old Jewish Cemetery. One...More

A really pretty, renaissance style building in the middle of the affluent Jewish quarter of Prague. Take a look at the clocks on the front of the building, one goes forward, the other backwards, apparently when built the architect thought it would be good to...More

We came upon this during one of our walks around Prague. Thankfully someone on Trip Advisor told us that the importance of the Hebrew clock is that it runs backwards. Nice curiosity.

We went to the jewish town and saw this clock but we didn't know it goes counterclockwise til now. We think only "oh, a clock". They should warn tourist about it

Not open for tourist but stay to admire the Hebrew Clock that runs counterclockwise. Another kind of Jewish Ghetto that you'll find in any other cities of Europe.

Impressed by the architecutre and maintenance thereof during the centuries and history. Maybe what we did not like is that buildings have been re-organised into restaurants or stores with not much indication of the past.

Jewish Town Hall is a Renaissance style building, and it’s built at the end of the 16-th century, with a baroque façade from the 18-th century. This building is situated in the Jewish Quarter (Josefov), very close to the Old New Synagogue. It’s very easy...More

This was the civil center of the old Jewish ghetto of Prague, just as the Old New Synagogue located beside it was the ghetto's religious center. Built in 1586, the town hall is no longer in use and is closed to the public, and its...More

Josefov houses Prague’s Jewish community. This small
neighborhood centered around Široká street is
completely surrounded by Staré Město (Old Town). As
the former Jewish Ghetto, today all that remains are a
few synagogues and the oldest surviving Jewish
cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
sides. You can still feel the dignity and history this
