You cannot beat the views of the city from the clock tower. You get such a feel for of the architecture of the city and you can see for miles. Plus, the clock is absolutely stunning and it's fun to watch on the hour.

It's wonderfully constructed but is an overrated tourist trap. The clock rings every hour and is often swamped with people. However, once the clock strikes the hour, you see tiny figures move about. It's nice to look at, but if possible go in the early hours to avoid the crowds.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

I was very excited to see this Astronomical Clock (Prague Orloj) in Prague. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working. The clock shows of figures of the Apostles and other moving sculptures hourly. Interestingly, a figure of Death is ringing the bell.

Amazing, Awesome, a must see....the best time to see it is at noon...12 apostles go around and the skeleton pulls the rope. It dates back to 1410! The square is very crowded, but worth the wait .

If you think Times Square on New Year’s Eve is crowded, wait till you see the crowds gathered every top of the hour at the Astronomical Clock, in the Old Town Square, to see the disciples and other figurines appear from behind the two wooden doors above the clock face. When the main bell goes off, a trumpeter sounds a fanfare from the top of the tower. A must-see while in Prague! Be advised that this only occurs between 9am and 9pm.

Fun to watch and mindbogglingly clever when you think about how old it is, the Astronomical Clock is a must see in Prague. Also get there about 10 minutes before the new hour to see the clock by itself without the crowds.

The chiming of the clock on the hour is neat, but you would expect something more based on the crowds that gather. Still, the clock itself is amazing, with a solar and lunar clock, a calendar, and the regular clock all built in. The clock underneath gives a listing of Czech names and corresponds to the Czech "name days".
