This is something you have to see. Hopefuly when there are not much tourists (maybe winter is not crowdy). Nothing more to say. Oups, there is one advice: don't get pictures of your selves with bunch of various clowns on the main square where the clock is. They will call and loure you and ask for money after the picture :-)
This May the clock was under restauratíon. Hope they finished it.

The astronomical clock is obviously under renovation with a really poor sheet hung over the top with an led visual underneath of the clock on the hour. Didn’t stop people stopping and picturing it. When it is working it is lovely to see but going up inside is great for views across the square and worth doing

Although the clock is undergoing repairs this is still worth a visit. We decided to take the guided tour, no extra charge, and so pleased we did. Our guide was excellent, very informative, explained about Czech history (ancient and more recent), and added bits about myths. A real bonus is the tour takes you to underground parts of the buildings that you cannot see if you go on your own. After the guided tour you can then go to the top of the tower and the views are stunning. You can either take the lift or walk up, it's quite a walk! From the top of the tower you can see the whole of Prague. Thoroughly recommend this.

Lots of wonderful architecture to see. Pity the astronomical clock was covered up for repairs, However this didn't spoil the visit. Always crowed as you would expect.

The guided tour more than made up for the fact that we couldn't see the clock itself.
There are a couple of parts once you walk into the ticket office. Your ticket will get you into walk all the way up (or take an elevator) to the top of the tower to get a gorgeous view of Prague. It will also get you into a building tour which starts on the first floor. Make sure to take the guided tour, which takes you down into the dungeon. English is every 2 hrs, on average. The self-guided tour is another option but you can't get down to the dungeons without the guide person. Time-wise, it doesn't take that much longer, and you get more out of it. And it's already included in the admission fee.
