Owner description: The Old Town Hall is one of the most significant monuments in the Czech Republic. It was established in 1338 as the administrative seat for Prague's Old Town. Now, it is mainly used for the ceremonial purposes of the capital city, Prague. The historical town hall consists of a set of five medieval houses, the corner of which is adorned with a historical astronomical clock, a gothic oriel window and a massive rectangular tower. The lookout gallery on the town hall tower offers the most beautiful view of Prague. A tour of the historical halls in the Old Town Hall is a unique experience. The expensively decorated rooms date from various periods and are examples of the remarkable development of the town hall complex. The guided tours in various languages are organised in hourly intervals.

Our group of four adults traveling together were a little disappointed that this beautiful clock is currently covered in scaffolding. However we understand it’s necessary in order to preserve it for many years to come. One thing that wasn’t under construction was the tower on top. First off we really appreciated having an elevator to take to the top. Most towers are reached only after climbing 100’s of stairs, so kudos to Prague for that. Secondly, the view was spectacular! We didn’t go up until our last night and we only did on a whim. I can’t believe we almost missed out. Put this on your ‘to do list’ in Praha. You will be glad you did!

Very interesting place with lots to see. A guide is a big help. Clock in process of a serious makeover but they have something in place to mimic. Expensive cafes here but just out a little much more reasonable. Would recommend for sure

You must go to the to for a great views. Small fee but worth it. Get there early in the morning so that you are the only ones at the top. We were there at about 8:30 or 9:00 and had the place all to ourselves!

Not really that interesting but if you're in the square already and it's not too cold it kills a couple minutes.

We’ve seen this on a previous trip but currently the clock tower is surrounded in scaffolding, they do project a video of the clock chiming the hour on a screen so you get an idea of what happens.
