Zytturm Clocktower, Zug, Switzerland
From a distance, the dome of the tower appears blue-white but as you get closer to it, you can see the time on it. But not just the time, it also shows the month, the phase of the moon, the day of the week and whether it is a leap year or not. The tower was actually built as a way through the oldest city walls and later part of it was used as a prison as well as housing a room to keep warm by an open fire. Today the 52-metre-high tower is open to everyone, an opportunity not to be missed.
