Not recommended for handicapped. I was witness to two persons who were turned away. ps very difficult to find in the winding alleys of the old city. The... More

If you have any interest in clocks, then this museum is worth a visit. My partner is a bit of a techie, and this was right up his street. We spent a very enjoyable hour looking round the exhibits.

This museum was walking distance from our hotel the Park Hyatt. It was such a great little museum. For the size of the actual museum, the collection is quite extensive and impressive. Our 7 year old is a HUGE fan of clocks and we surprised him with a visit with just mom and dad and his brothers stayed back at... More

Uhrenmuseum gives a glimpse into that rich tradition with a dizzying array of clocks and watches, illustrating not only the progression and detail involved in the science of timekeeping but also the art and culture that has gone along with its evolution. You'll... More

A really interesting museum, in the heart of Vienna. My husband is into clocks & watches so he was in his element. They have some really quirky & unusual time pieces on three floor, it's well worth a visit. The museum is situated very close to Stephensdom cathedral.

This was recommended by Atlas Obscura. It was quite interesting to see clocks and time progress. What did fascinate me was how some of the huge timepieces ended up in such tiny rooms? Answers on a postcard ......

Although I am not overly interested in this area, I could appreciate the impressive collection this museum had to offer. I received free entry to this museum, as is customary on the first Sunday of the month, but I am not sure I would pay 7 euro otherwise. After the museum, be sure to take a walk around the surrounding... More

This is a strange place: 3 floor, each with 3-4 room of watches from different periods. Although they few very nice watches, they are many better watch museum, especially in Switzerland

I would have liked to have awarded a higher score as Ienjoyed the visit to the museum, some of the clocks on display are fascinating and beautiful, however there is one big issue for me. Only 2 clocks in the whole place are being clocks, the rest are ornamentally set to 10-to-2. Surely the point of a clock is it... 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.
