If you have a bit of time to visit the cathedral (entrance is free, no need for ticket), go and do it! You can take a tour that will explain you every bit about the clock but to be honest, I would recommend you go,...More

Don't miss the astronomical clock - at the moment under maintenance but still working. Cueing to the 12.45 visit allows you to see the 1.00 pm motion of the clock.

Heads up—the clock is covered inside and out for re-furnishing/maintenance?? No signs to explain. Was a disappointment but the rest of the cathedral quickly made me forget that. Worth a visit just for the clock so somehow check its status

Was there last week and it was under renovation. However entrance was free. Covered with a picture, so can tell that it is pretty when open.

The cllock is very similar to the one in the city square of Prague. Impressive in itself but not nearly as ornate as the one in Prague

After a couple of my friends from the U.S., had paid to visit the astronomical clock, I decided to when a friend came to visit. For 5euros this visit was definitely worth it for me to see how the different artists/scientists created this clock, wow...More
