    Walking around inside s clock and clock tower sound bring until you have visited the Goss-Horloge. English audio tour very well done. View from the top worth the price of admission!  more »

    This street with the big clock is very nice because it is a pedestrian street and the smell of coffee from a roaster will excite your taste buds. Go ahead because the Normand style is ubiquitous and this street is beautiful.

    €10 a visit. You can visit the building of the small shop where stood the watchmakers until the place where the bells and even up to the cupola with a great view of Rouen and including the Cathedral. Small disappointment to see that this clock is automated and that its former mechanism is deposited in another room.

    Audio tour is informative and interesting. Great views from the top. Need to be able to cope with steep and narrow stairs

    One of the oldest working clocks in Europe with great views of the lovely town of Rouen from the roof terrace.

    Beautiful clock in Rouen. Built to show the wealth of Rouen merchants, this clock is still awe inspiring. A must see when in Rouen, France.

    Clock Tower in Rouen. Historical street. Also historical structure. Follow this street you will get in to the old town and follow the route.

Where to stay in Rouen

If your main reason for visiting Rouen is its famous cathedral, which inspired Monet to paint dozens of canvasses, consider booking your room at a hotel in or around the city center. Despite being within walking distance of the cathedral and the river, hotels in this area provide comfort and privacy at modest prices. If you're looking to splurge and location isn't your priority, think about staying at a luxurious hotel-spa situated farther outside the city, where you can have access to heated outdoor pools.
