The famous Ankeruhr (Anchor Clock) forms a bridge between two buildings of the Anker Insurance Company located in the oldest square of Vienna, Hoher Market.
Franz von Matsch designed this elaborate clock in the Art Nouveau style I introduced here. It was built in 1917 to commemorate twelve famous Austrian personalities, such as Prince Eugen, Empress Maria Theresa, composer Joseph Haydn and others.
Each hour, one of the figures moves across the bridge. If you enlarge the image, you can better see that I took the photo at about 17:40, but I can't tell you who this figure represents. At noon, the historical figures are all displayed together; I missed that show.
