Entry prices

The visit includes the Zimmer Tower with “Jubilee Clock” and “Astronomical Studio”, and the Zimmer Pavilion with the “Wonder Clock”. An audio system allows a choice of four languages: Dutch, French, German and English. The visit takes 40 to 50 minutes. In the context of time and space, an introduction is given starting with the “big bang” and then, via Zimmer’s cogwheels, another view is given of modern electronics for measuring time.

Two publications are available for sale at the desk: a limited overview of the most important bells and a comprehensively illustrated book on the Zimmermuseum with more than 200 pages.

Why these low entrance fees? 

In line with Louis Zimmer’s philosophy, we deliberately keep admission prices low. After all, Zimmer wanted to stimulate the interest of as many adults and children as possible.

A visit to the Zimmer Tower is therefore more than worthwhile!
