Astronomical Clock St. Mary's Church Rostock

Behind the high altar on the apse is an astronomical clock built in 1472 by Hans Düringer, a clockmaker from Nuremberg. It consists of three partitions - Top: Apostle-go-round giving an hourly performance of the apostles crossing before Jesus for a blessing before entry into eternal bliss, and the last, Judas, is shut out;

  • Middle: Clock with daily time, zodiac, moon phases, and month;

  • Bottom: Calendar, which is valid until 2017. The medieval clock is the only one of its kind still in working condition with its original clockworks.
