  • every hour on the hour you get a lovely trumpet-like musical show, with clanky little figures doing their thing. stop, look up, enjoy.  more »
  • There is construction on the building, so the chimes and clock are stopped. Hopefully it will be done soon.  more »
  • It's really worth it. Be sure you'll go and watch what happens. It will just take ten minutes and the clock works each hour. For ten minutes the doors open and close and amazing things happen.  more »

  • lovely, fun, busy street with modern and old architecture, nice shops, usually a musician & fruit stand or two
  • Looks nice, but at this time it's not working. In the shop it belongs to I was told it would be fixed (sometime). Still nice to look at.
  • Since my childhood, I know the Bell game. For me, it's amazing. Who is in the city should take the time for it
