This is a beautiful and unusual clock set on a bridge between two buildings. At 12 noon, a series of figures proceed, with mechanical efficiency, across the face.

Attraction in the centre of Vienna. Worth a visit. At 12 all 12 figures pass across front of clock, so this is the best and busiest time to visit.

This is located in the Hoher Market area and was built around 1911. It is a colorful clock that operates every hour and depicts some historical personalities.. Worth a look if you are in the area.
