The inside story

The Fighting Goats of Poznań is one of the top tourist attractions in the city. Take a stroll through the market square passing the colorful buildings, cafes, food stalls and vendors reaching the town hall. Stop amonst the bustling tourists and look up to watch the iconic iron goats face each other every day at 12 o’clock.

The mechanical goats have been battling it out since the year 1551, due to a story about burnt deer. In the 16th century the town chef was cooking an elaborate feast for the mayor. Distracted by the celebration the young cook overcooked the venison dinner.

To salvage the meal, the butcher grabbed two goats from a nearby meadow. Unfortunately, they escaped and darted off towards Town Hall where they ran up the stairs into the tower and locked horns to battle it out. The gowing crowd of onlookers below loved the show so much that the mayor order the local watchmaker to make a mechanism with goats.

The legend says that when the town hall was rebuilt after the great fire in Poznań, the clock for the town hall tower was ordered.
