Comments:
Sign number 112 from the "Vienna - the city introduces itself" series of signs, an initiative established in 1956 as part of the Vienna Festival, which shows significant places in the city. The serial number is displayed at the bottom of the sign.
Above the sign are 4 flags of Austria, which is a hallmark of the project, and the possibility of recognizing it from a distance Click for a larger image

The sign is located on the site of the Watch Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of watches in Europe.
In the 15th and 16th centuries there was a Jewish garden and later a cemetery. In 1690 the place passed to Ferdinand Marchese de Obizzi and in 1917 the Vienna Clock Museum moved to it.

The building was photographed on the same day (on the building you can see the sign indicating that the building is the site of the Clock Museum - VIENNA MUSEUM UHRENMUSEUM) Click for a larger image
