It’s worth visiting Vienna’s Clock Museum (Uhrenmuseum) simply for the sake of its enchanting building from the historical city! It houses some 3,000 clocks in a unique European collection, which documents the measurement of time and the technology of horology from the 15th century to the present day.
Hofer, the Watchmaker
The same building is also home to the premises of the master watchmaker Gerald Hofer. If you would like to own your own antique clock – whether a French table clock or a double pendulum clock – then look no further.
A staircase in the Verbund headquarters has been transformed into a gallery for contemporary, international art. The focus of the collection is the feminist avant-garde, with works by Cindy Sherman, Francesca Woodman, Valie Export, among others. Open on Wednesdays, by registration only.
Early 20th-century modern art and post-war avant-garde. Major museums as well as private collectors show their works here. Contemporary artists have also regularly exhibited here since 2000. Also, there is a choice bookshop in the museum shop with publications on artistic topics and theories.
The largest Austrian auction house with a wide array of art genres and objects for collectors: jewellery, antiquities, sculptures, jewels, porcelain, musical instruments. Also: their own jewellery line. In the gallery, the Dorotheum Cafe sits between art and antiquities that can be bought at fixed prices.
Galerie Ernst Hilger
With up to nine exhibitions a year, Hilger must be one of the busiest gallery owners in the country. With his programme from early 20th-century modern art to contemporary international and Austrian art, he not only champions established stars but also helps less well-known artists to start their careers.
Galerie nächst St. Stephan
This gallery has been in the Grünangergasse since the 1920s. It is a symbol for lively involvement with modern art in the disciplines of painting, sculpture, installations, photography and video. Numerous exhibitions, symposia and independent publications are all part of the programme.
