Above the clock disc the Clock has its iconographic and artistic highlight. In the centre above a semicircle there is the knee-length portrait of Christ as the Redeemer. The cornice on both sides is formed with columns and arches. In the arches there are six of the twelve Apostles (four in the frontal area, two at the side). The figure of Christ appears out of the right door at 12 noon. At midnight the other six Apostles step out. They circle around Christ and turn to him. After they have been blessed by Christ they disappear through the left door. Judah has been excluded from this ceremony. He carries a moneybag and does not turn to Christ. He is not blessed and the left door closes before he gets through it. He has to wait there until the next rotation starts.
On the top cornice there is a three-storey tower, four angels as well as two triangular ornaments with further angels. In addition there are imaginative and ornamental carvings with Adam and Eve in the centre. This scene replaced the original unknown demonstration in 1641/43.
A considerable manual, artistic and financial effort was spend to create this high-class top cornice. It also applies to the margin of the clock disc and the calendar area. The ravages of time have left their marks in the last 360 years. But the allegoric figures, grimaces, putti, heads and other carvings at the margin as well as the twelve windows made of Flemish glass very much appeal to people who take their time to search for the beauties in particular.
