The medieval tower clock is located on the southern side of Old Town Square. The clock was installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock globally and the oldest clock still operating.
Each round hour, between 9 am to 11 pm, the clock procession of the Twelve Apostles sets in motion.
Inside is a staircase and an elevator, which visitors can climb or ride to the top to take in beautiful 360 views over the Old Town.
