The Clock tower stands in the middle of the Konak square, which is the sole center of Turkey's second biggest city. The clock is a present from German emperor Wilhelm II to his Ottoman colleague Sultan Abdulhamit from early 20c. The clock itself is very decorative, made in Ottoman style, but highly disproportional to the square, as it's too small for such a big space. Anyway, it's Izmir's prime attraction with many others close by, like the Kemeralti market place and Kordonboyu.

Nice landmark in a clean and tidy location. Not much else here apart from the small mosque. Really good to take a break though with a cold drink and watch the passers by. Maybe feed to pigeons too. Lots of pigeons 😁

A must see in izmir situated by the pier buzzing with activity and near government offices. A very photographed place. Locanters, shops and near transport. Ice cream sellers in little carts and birds being fed lots of places to see nearby taxis and parking plentiful..enjoy

Having seen this small monument in such a large square during the day and at night I would say it has more gravitas at night when it is lit up.

A stunning clock with its interesting history 1. This tower is although short but gorgeous. No wonder it appears in a 500 lira banknote in Turkey during the 1980s. 2. The clock itself is a gift by the Germans, so not only ottoman architecture you can see, but a German clock itself too. 3. Anyway, remember to bring your camera and take more pictures. There is a mosque nearby and there is a great sea view over there. There is plenty of juice shops over there so in case you are thirsty, buy some juices.
