The city hall of Heilbronn has this interessting astronomical clock, that looks quite good. Is directly in the city center, so it is worth a visit.

Total restoration to the whole of the building and Astronomical clock was required after the flattening of Heilbron in 1944. We marvelled as it chimed at the hour,figures,rams and cockerel all animated ,as this is roughly nearly 500 years old,it's the ultimate show piece here.

Went to Heilbronn on business trip. Very surprised with the market place and the astronomical clock. Very well conserved. Had lunch at the Ratskeller, which I highly recommend.

Sitting atop Heilbronn City Hall, the beautiful astronomical clock comes to life hourly with moving creatures and sound effects. The clock itself is ornate, beautiful and functional. The effects are not quite what you expect from seeing such things in cartoons, but they are imaginative,...More

Visited this during the wine festival. It was all lit up in gold because of the sunlight. Looks awesome...:)

Lovely sight to see on the hour. But on the 4, 8 and 12 it's the best. The square is pretty and the Rathaus is also very picturesque.
