Was interested to see the Town Hall and planned our visit around the noon display. There was quite a crowd gathered and waited for the clock to strike noon. At this time on the top of the building, two mechanical goats slowly emerge then approach one another and proceed to head butt one another. Lasts only a short time but... More

The crowds that are gathering every day at 12:00 in the afternoon to see the two bill goats headbutting eachother are very numerous as the story bhind it and the importance given to it after is tremendous (almost in every corner of this city you can find a reffering to the goats and even one of the most famous Polish...

There's nothing more important to see in Poznan than famous goats. There's only one "show" during the day at noon so be prepared to come there at that time!

One of the most popular attraction in Poznań. On a top of a mayor house, punctually at 12:00, two goat figurines will appear at the top and arrange a small fight amng themselves/ This is to memorize one of the old Posnanian legends and give a lot of fun to crowds gathered on Stary Rynek. Enjoy!

Two goats are located on the town hall over the clock. At 12:00 they appear by exiting through the door and fight with each other. The goats are the symbol of Poznan City.

Just like the st. Mary's Trumpet Call form Krakow, Poznan has its own call played live at noon. The only difference is that Poznan has it better - with two legendary mechanical goats ramming into each other twelve times! So the audio is beautifully complemented by a short visual performance. Excellent for kids. To complement your audiovisual sensations, quickly move... More

The town hall is very beautiful. You should definitely be here by noon to watch the Billy Goat show.

Symbol of the city - two struggling goats. You can see them only once a day at noon so better not be late.

Every day at 12.00 noon a bugler sounds his trumpet and two goats (koziolki) come out of one of the windows in the tower to commemorate something that happened a long time ago - which I will not give away, but worth seeing and finding out about.
