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.

This is one of the last remaining examples of a true Renaissance Town Hall ( If not the very last one ) The ceiling on the first floor is worth the visit, as it is truly beautiful. Some interesting pieces of Poznan's history are also housed in the museum.
