Hoher Markt Clock (Ankeruhr), Vienna
(3.1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
At the heart of a vibrant market stands Hoher Markt Clock (Ankeruhr), an Art Nouveau clock that tells more than the time. Built between 1911 and 1914, the ornately decorated, gold-accented piece is the creation of painter and sculptor Franz von Matsch, and it makes up part of the bridge connecting two parts of the Anker Insurance Company building. At the stroke of every hour, a historical figure crosses the bridge; at noon--the time the clock is most sought out--all 12 figures emerge (including Marcus Aurelius, Rudolf von Habsburg, and Joseph Haydn), accompanied by organ music from each era. Following the performance, browse the market for a great selection of fresh bakery, produce, and deli groceries. Add Hoher Markt Clock (Ankeruhr) to your Vienna travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Vienna vacation route planner.

  • Located in the center of Vienna, this time I think it is worth for enthusiasts. We went from hence we missed 12.00 attraction.

  • Is situated in a square near Stephanplatz. Was used a kind of bridge between two buildings over there they put this beautiful timepiece, the Art Nouveau style in the period of World War II. In the bridge, once an hour passing through uplifting figures 12 historical figures of the austro-Hungarian Empire. Therefore, the monument or attraction has more meaning for the Viennese and Austrians than to tourists from other countries. It's a nice piece, but without the grandeur of other watches such as the Plague.
