"Astronomical Clock" Astronomical Clock - Cathedral Tip by Ujamaflip

  Astronomical Clock
by Ujamaflip
 
 

The astronomical clock is a fantastic example of collaboration between artists, mathematicians and technicians. Swiss watchmakers, sculptors, panters and automaton manufacturers all worked together in its creation. The clock is a mid-nineteenth century version of the fourteenth century original.

The best time to see the clock is a 12:30 every day, where the automatons begin their show.

Address: Inside the Notre Dame de Strasbourg
Directions: By the South Portal
