It seems to be one of those things that a city will create in order to make itself interesting and unique and attract more visitors. If you are in town and in the area (it IS in an area frequented by foreigners) then by all means check it out at 7 or 8 pm but nothing to go out of... More

Attracts a lot of punters at night to see the performance with a light show that goes on and on. IN the daytime, a landmark.

My friends were fussing over seeing the light show at this tower, and it was no big deal. There are just lights of different colors that shine the clock tower very slowly. It was a joke that people were recording it. It's nice to see if you're already in the area and passing by, but it's nothing special.

Take time to stop and look at this clock tower at night. When we were there in December, there was some music along with color changing. Nice attraction in the middle of the street close to our hotel.

Tje vlocktower itself is very nice and offers something special, but the area closely around it is not nice. It seems as though the whole budget of the city went into this clocktower, since even the buildings closely around it are old and unaesthetic.

I would suggest visiting this place in the night time as it will have some light to brighten the tower. The tower itself is located at the centre of the road. However, there is a pedestrian nearby where you can drop by and take a photo.

The clock tower is an impressive civic structure. Beautiful in the day or at night. Easy to find, but nothing to do other than take a few pictures.
