It's really close to Stephansplatz and St Stephens Cathedral you just walk around the corner. It's more impressive at noon when there is 12 tunes accompany the 12 figures otherwise it's just a clock at other times of the day set high up on the wall.

An amazing timepiece. Historical figures move across the clock as music plays. Worth visiting at 12pm.

Visited St Stephen's cathedral and took in the many Baroque buildings and parks in and around the main centre of Vienna; took ubahn to Schonbrunn; Beethoven symphonies at Musikverein. Lovely place to visit. Don't miss the Anker clock at Noon, 12 tunes accompany the 12 figures.

The Ankeruhr is a must-see if you're visiting Wien at noon, it depicts important events in the history of Austria telling a story in a unique way.

Just stumbled upon his clock while walking around. It is very unusual but quite a beautiful clock that utilises historical figures to tell the time and plays music at noon. It is worth seeing if you are in the area.

I come here with not having intension to see it was only a little luck because I could here beautiful classic music played somewhere and then i see people standing there looking up to clock and listning to the music. So it was a nice moment to hear classic music and rest some minutes while the song was played.

Walking distance from historic area and if you have a few extra minutes something worth seeing. Not much else in the area.

Anker Clock is a typical Art Nouveau design. People love to watch the daily parade at noon when all 12 historical figures cross the bridge. A fantastic performance and worth watching!

This historic clock plays music every one hour when one character makes an appearance. Once a day, at noon time, all of the characters "perform" together. Very nice - not a "must".

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.
