  • Faces with huge Windows on Marianplaz. Good food and friendly staff and very customer focused.

  • It's so charming to see the little puppets dance about on the clock. Definitely check it out :)
  • They don't make clocks like this anymore. This is great to see. It's not hours of entertainment but is not something to be missed.
