Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / Prague / Prague Astronomical Clock
The square surrounding Prague Astronomical Clock is one of the most crowded spots in all of Prague, attracting tourists eager to synchronize their watches with one of the world's oldest timepieces. The town hall, founded here in the 1330s, houses the old town's main tourist office and has art exhibits on its first two floors. You can take a guided tour of the building to see its council chamber and assembly room, noted for containing exquisite mosaics from the 1930s. Be sure to climb the building's Gothic tower to see the inner workings of the famous astronomical clock, considered one of medieval Europe's major technical achievements. The clock's decorative figures put on a lively show on the hour, so time your visit if possible. You can plan Prague trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

Incredible clock, amazing that someone designed this back in the day and that it still works. We were there to see the top of the hour activity with the clock and though it is not as impressive as...

This was so fun to visit and watch! On the hour, the little, glass windows at the top open, showing the different apostles/saints rotating behind the clock face. The clock sits in the middle of Old Town Square, so it was pretty busy both times that I went. On the hour, specifically, it was pretty challenging to get close to it as people wanted to watch/listen to the chimes. It's worth it, though! This quirky clock is definitely a must-go if you are visiting Prague.
This review is only for the workers here, as I couldn't go up to the tower. People so, so rude. There was a system error so you could only buy with cash. They clearly told me there was no problem at all with cash. So I go to withdraw cash to the bank (not a single one close) and when I came back, another worker told me that that was false, I can't buy with cash now. What happened between those exact 20 minutes? Who knows. Maybe they didn't feel like working at all and wanted to go home early (this was 17:30 by the way). Not a single sorry for lying to your face. Nothing. Just a "fork you", we don't care. Update: up to 3 stars, because the views deserve better rating, the rest still applies. It's perfect at sunset, so you can view the area by day and night if you wait. The rooftops at sunset are great to look at. But you get pretty much the same (plus the bridge itself) views facing the Castle from Charles Bridge and surroundings. You don't gain anything extra from the height though.
