All about the trip
Don't waste your precious time and be among the firsts to enter the famous Prague Astronomical Clock Tower with the skip-the-line ticket. Visit the Gothic clock tower and see the insides of the world's oldest operational astronomical clock.
Meet our assistant at our Get Prague Guide office to pick up your tickets. While picking up the tickets you will get a 20 minutes introduction about the history and main information about the Tower so once you get there you will feel like you know the place.
Then it's time to visit the clock. Every hour a small trapdoor opens and Christ himself marches out, followed by his disciples. The Grim Reaper also rings a bell - checking to see whose time has come (unsurprisingly, everyone shakes their heads 'no'). There are also planetary motion, the zodiac, and more on the clock. 75% of its parts are original dating back to the 15th century.
With your tickets, you'll get to skip the lines and take the stairs or an elevator up the tower. From there you'll have stunning views of the Old Town Square and the rest of Prague's Old Town. On your way back down to Prague, you can contemplate the power of this clock. It's an appropriate occasion to call to mind the words of English essayist, Henry Austin Dobson: "Time goes, you say? Ah no! Alas, Time stays, we go". That ought to encourage you to make the most out of your time in Prague.What Wikipedia says about Prague's Astronomical Clock
