  The Anker Clock

While I was exploring the side streets round Stephansdom, I ended up in this Vienna's oldest part-Hoher Markt (High Market). The 1st thing that caught my attention was the lovely Wedding Fountain (Vermählungsbrunnen), but then I heard the sound of the Anker Clock (to the right from the fountain) that 'hangs' between 2 buildings. I had to stop and watch the parade of its figures across the face of the clock. I've never seen anything like that before.

Address: The old part of Vienna inside the Ringstrasse

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
