Gain skip-the-line access to the Prague Astronomical Clock and the Old Town Hall Tower. At almost 70 metres high, it is one of the best viewpoints in the city.

In front of the tower, an attendant will give you your ticket along with a short introduction to the history of this fascinating 14th century clock. Built at the foot of the Prague Town Hall Tower by the greatest clockmaker Nicholas of Kadaň in 1410, this striking clock is one of the oldest Gothic-style monuments in Europe.

You will see the oldest and most important part of the clock, the astronomical quadrant with its distinctive ring showing the signs of the Zodiac, as well as the position of the sun and moon in relation to them. You will see the "Walk of the Apostles", which depicts the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ moving in a circular motion inside the clock. And you will contemplate its four important animated figures of vanity, greed, death and lust .

Avoid the queues and book your ticket to the Astronomical Clock Tower in advance and enjoy the history of Prague's famous clock and the best panoramic views of the Old Town .

    A watch totally out of series for the era in which it was built. It is a marvel in its entirety.

    It is one of the most famous international monuments in Prague. I was really surprised to see it in person, I imagined a more ordinary clock, but I ended up getting a nice surprise.

    Beautiful clock inside Prague. I didn't like to cross with so many people in the square.
