A Stunning, Two-Story Astronomical Clock in Lübeck

St. Mary’s Church in Lübeck has many fascinating features inside and outside its ancient Brick Gothic walls. One of them is a stunning two-story timepiece. 

The astronomical clock’s massive faces show the time, date, location of the zodiac signs, and the positions of the Sun and Moon. The contraption was faithfully built in the 1960s by a local clockmaker named Paul Behrens. He considered the masterpiece to be his greatest achievement and maintained it up until he died.
