Picture clock with Alster panorama

Detail Uhrenbild At first sight, the family scene before the river Alster with a view of the city is only a beautiful Biedermeier painting. However, actuation of the complex mechanism makes the picture begin to move and emit sound: The figures dance to the music, the mill turns, the boats travel on the Alster and the coaches, riders, soldiers and pedestrians move across Lombardsbrücke.

This exhibit is unique even internationally. With generous donations and great commitment from master clockmaker H. Tüxen, it was possible to repair the mechanics, too, after the painting was restored in 2012.
