The online guide is available in English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, and Czech language.

  • Get a short introduction in English to the history, significance, and meaning of this remarkable piece of medieval engineering
  • See the famous 600-year-old astronomical clock on your own and skip the long lines to get into its tower
  • Get spectacular views of the City of a Thousand Spires from the top

Waiting in line to visit a clock is a paradox of wasted time folding in upon itself. This skip-the-line ticket gets you right in, so you can visit the Gothic clock tower and see the insides of the world's oldest operational astronomical clock.

Meet your assistant at the Get Prague Guide office to pick up your tickets. While picking up the tickets you'll have a 20-minute introduction about the history and main information on the tower, so once you get there it will feel like you know the place.

Then, visit the clock on your own. Every hour two small trapdoors open and the twelve apostles march out to tell their stories. 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 - and 75% of its parts are original, like 'from-the-15th-century' original.

You'll get to skip the lines and take the stairs or an elevator up the tower. From there you'll have amazing views over the Old Town Square and the rest of Prague's Old Town.

On your way back down, you can think on the staying 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 of your time in Prague.

De gids die we hadden deed zijn job heel goed. We hebben het hele verhaal meegekregen, terwijl we een stukje van de stad verkende. Hij sprak heel duidelijk en beantwoorde met plezier al onze vragen. Ik raad Dez excursie absoluut aan!

La chance d’avoir une guide qui s’exprimait en français pour moi seul et qui a pu tout m’expliquer sur cette fameuse horloge. La vue de là-haut est incroyable!
