Hidden round the back of the Church of Maria Am Gestade, and poorly signposted off Tuchlaben, this is a gem not to be missed. In an old house, it has no lift, and the 3 floors are accessed by one spiral staircase. So if someone...More

Excellent collection. Must visit for anyone connected to clocks in any way. The collection of astronomical clocks is just awesome. Austria had some very very skilled clock makers which were totally hidden to the outside world. The collection of super miniature table clocks is just...More
