Definitly worth seeing. Lots of details. Make sure you will be on the full hours to see the statues move.

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.

Firstly you have to see it on the hour to get the chimes and full movements, but at any other time it is still a lovely restored clock that should be seen, if in the square.

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.

I love clocks, especially astrological or astronomical clocks. Unfortunately I didn't see it when it struck the hour but it was beautiful all the same. If you only have a short time to visit Heilbronn put this at the top of your list.

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...:)
