We stopped in the Clock Museum the other day since it was free for the first Sunday of the month. I will be honest and say that otherwise we would not have made a trip to see it, but we were very surprised at how enjoyable we found it. Our kids (ages 6 and 10) were fascinated by the different...

If you are very into clocks then I advise going but calling it a museum is stretching it. Yes there are some placards saying what each clock is and when it's made etc but the descriptions are short. I expected a little history on clockmaking, how clocks worked and some education. In fact it is just a collection of clocks.... More

I went there with 25 8 year olds, so the experience is probably a bit differnt than if you go quietly with your family. Nevertheless I thought it was great. I am not that much of a nerd but I am big fan of watches. If you go book a guided tour it is worth the extra money. The lady... More

I was really surprised when I enter in this museum. There is a lot of clocks you can see and they are really interesting. If you are in the center, I recommend this museum. Every first Sunday in the month it is free entrance.

Interesting museum in the center of Vienna. It is fascinating to see the history of the clock and the shapes it had over the years. I recommand it.

The clock museum is in the historic Vienna centre. It is a four story building with about 3 rooms and 100 clocks in each floor. Very interesting clocks. For children and adults. The written descriptions are in German and English. The staff, on the other hand, is awful. First, they speak only German. Two, they are looking at your very... More

This museum has lots of clocks of all sizes and shapes. Small museum, located on 3 floors. Took about 1/2 hour to go through the museum and see the various clocks. Good museum for the price. I believe there was a discount for Vienna card holders.

I really like clocks so took up the opportunity to visit the clock museum on my holiday to Vienna. Was told on entering that all the clocks would go off on the hour, so was disappointed that we didn't hear a single one! Museum consists of three floors with clocks from different times on each floor, with the top floor... More

Ok, I will write just excellent, and just to clarify, that if you don't like watches or clocks, don't visit chaps. The ones who like these small piece s of art, I will strongly suggest you to visit. Amazing variety from the first clocks to modern.... Found some watches never seen before. Unfortunately there is no guide available, but you... More

Compared to other museums in Vienna this is a rather small. It has 3 floors with lots of stairs. Each floor has a few rooms with clocks. Some of the information that you can read on the wall is helpful. We were especially interested in seeing how large clocks in church towers operate. There were clocks smaller than a thimble... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
