Five times a day, people gather in front of a chiming clock with mechanical figures that re-enact the story of Schneider Wibbel, a dressmaker who insulted Napoleon and was sent to prison, except he sent his apprentice, who died in jail. This cunning dressmaker has come to represent the typical ‘clever Rheinlander.’
