  •  A clock set up in the clock tower of the new town hall. Every day, at 11:00 and noon, and at 5:00, the convention of the Duke of Bavaria's wedding ceremony takes place. It lasts more than 10 minutes overall. First, the bell which informs the time rings, lorelei's melody flows, and the scene of the parade and the horse spear game begins to move, the scene of the parade and the horse spear game unfolds, and the knight on the right side is knocked back on the second lap, and the upper part ends. Then, the dance of the beer barrel craftsman in the lower part begins. When the lower part stops, the melody plays for a while. There are many people who go home thinking it will be the end, but at the end, the top golden chicken will fly and squeal three times, so please watch it. I saw it twice, but 'We missed the first time.
