  The astronomical clock (Marienkirche)
by sim1

The astronomical clock in the Marienkirche fascinated me. I've been looking at it for quite a while trying to figure out all its meanings and how it works. Hahaha, of course I didn't succeed, there is too much to see and too many details. So I got the brochure instead to get some help to understand the clock.
The original clock was destroyed, and today's astronomical clock comes from the local clockmaker Paul Behrens. It is made after a copy of the original. In this picture you can see only half of the astronomical clock, the top part. The whole clock is huge and it is almost impossible to miss it when you visit the Marienkirche.
