Second trip, based on kids request. It is time consuming stop, because you want to learn and discover. Use slow pace, try to find answers to the puzzle. Kids can be on their own, great.

Interesting site to see the history of German clock - both old and new. Not as big as expected, and smaller as well. But we stayed for a couple of hours looking and discussing all of the different designs.
