Things to Do in Poznan
Explore the halls of the former Imperial Castle.
The youngest and last monarchical residence in Europe, the former Imperial Castle (also known as the Zamek) was originally created at the start of the 20th century specifically for the use of German Emperor Wilhelm II. Today the Imperial Castle is a cultural facility, which includes a wide variety of different exhibitions, children’s animation theater and even a state of the art cinema. You can explore the halls of the former Imperial Castle with a guide which grants you the opportunity to explore many of the interesting parts of the castle which may not be available if you explore without the use of the guide, such as the original and breathtaking throne of Wilhelm II.

Witness the billy goats clash at noon.
If you find yourself wandering into the heart of the Old Market Square you will no doubt spot a clock that was produced back in 1551. This clock is not like any other as it features two mechanical billy goats upon the Town Hall. Each and every single day as the clock strikes noon, you will notice a door suddenly open above the clock before two billy goats suddenly appear and butt their heads together twelve times. The billy goats are controlled specifically by the clock’s mechanism and are a truly remarkable sight to see.
Relax beside the Maltanskie Lake.
