When one considers the age and complexity of Mr. Zimmer's creation, one just cannot be anything but impressed or amazed. Well worth the outing, especially if combined with the béguinage, town square and other fun bits to see. all in easy walking distance too.

This fascinating clock tower is in the lovely little town of Lier which with it's perfect beguinage and pleasant historic centre makes for a pleasant day trip from Antwerp. Try and be at the clock at Noon. We were fortunate in that when we arrive in Lier we went to the visitor information centre where a very helpful young man not only gave us a map which details a walk around the town's attractions but also hurried us along to the tower where we arrived just before 12 when the doors of the clock tower open to show portraits of worthies from it's year of construction 1830. The whole town is a pleasant change from the hustle and bustle of (still wonderful!) Antwerp where we'e staying.

If you love clocks this is THE place for you. Amazingly simple mechanics, which are on view, working an amazingly intricate clock. The tower was reconstructed to house this wonderful clock built by Mr Zimmer a native of Lier. There are recordings on each level explaining the workings etc in English if you wish. Mr Zimmers workshop is also included in the museum and is a faithful copy as we visited with a friend who knew Mr Zimmer and had visited the workshop years ago! Well worth a visit.

The original building was built around 1425 as part of the original fortifications. Louis Zimmer donated a clock. This clock displays may thing besides the time in different locations there is time of the tides and phases of the moon. Quite marvelous. Definitely a must to see.

One of the Touristic highlights of the beatiful town of Lier. The tower is located on a cozy square with quite a number of pubs and food serving localities.

A quick stop off, to look, and wonder how did we ever cope before things like this came along.
Lots of near by cafes to sit and drink and look at the tower.

We didn't know what to expect, but the tourist info recommended it and it only cost a couple of euros each. Wow, the treasures inside! The Wonder Clock is truly amazing, and the collection of clock technologies was surprisingly fascinating. The tower clock was of course also incredible, and has a lot more inside than it even has on show on the outside! This is well worth a visit and 1-2 hours.
