A 600-year-old timepiece mounted on the southern wall of the Old Town Hall which exhibits a mastery of medieval engineering. An astronomical dial represents the position of the sun and the moon. Then, as the clock strikes the hour, the “Walk of the Apostles” occurs where twelve apostle figures can be seen and the figurine of a skeleton which represents death. It is the world’s oldest clock that is still operating. Top Tip: The clock rings every hour, on the hour, where you can see its moving components and a bird popping out. Understandably, this is an incredibly busy time. You can make the most of this by visiting some of the other nearby sites to take advantage of the lull. Try to visit the clock either first thing in the morning or at night, to avoid the crowds. Photo Credits: Abdullah Yılmaz on Unsplash
