Church of St. Mary, astronomical clock

Church of St. Mary, astronomical clock

Created in 1464-70, this clock also has a listing of all saints' feast days on the bottom. I took some closeups of this that I will probably post later, but I don't want to overdo the church right now ;-).

This is the largest brick church in Europe, with construction starting in 1343 and finishing 150 years later. It was rebuilt after its destruction in 1945.
