  • We visited the museum in April - not too crowded. Huge collection of all kinds of clocks, the history told through the exhibition. If you are in the black forest consider this museum.
  • Amazing collection of clocks covering hundreds of years. The tour is good but would be even better if the guide wouldn't be interrupted repeatedly by announcements over the PA system.
  • A good clock museum showing everything about clock, clock history. May spend more than an hour and sometimes it also has workshop (I think need reservation ahead of time) or demonstration. It is located in a more remote area, less tourist/commercial town, comparing to Schwarzwaldmuseum.
  • best clock museum
  • Really bello....il time and its measurement are the basis of human progress
