"Ankeruhr" in Wien/Vienna

While having a stroll through the center of Vienna I have discovered the lovely clock called "Ankeruhr". Die Ankeruhr am Hohen Markt is a 4-meter-big clock in art nouveau design, which has been installed in 1914. It feautures 12 different characters from the Austrian history (such as old kings and musicians). Its location, "der Hohe Markt", is the oldest square in town.

At 12h (lunch time) every day a big crowd gathers in front of it to watch the show display of all of them. Even in the night the clock is worth a sight!
