Furtwangen is world famous for being the home of the cuckoo clocks. Couldn't that be in this town in the National Museum of clocks with the largest collection of Black Forest clocks (about 4,000 pieces). On three floors, the Museum brings together clocks of various sizes, from all times and from all over the world. Seeing, in addition to cuckoo clocks, astronomical clocks and, in particular, the great astronomical clock from the late 18th century with Planetarium, backing and moving characters. Not to be missed, towards the end of the visit, the precursor of the changer.
This was a fantastic experience! Had a wonderful "time!" The information was presented well in English on the smartphone app, and the collection itself is absolutely stunning. Definitely make "time" for this museum - I loved it and anyone with an appreciation for history, art, and clocks will enjoy it!
Was a nice place, you can look at all kinds of new and old clocks, and can even see the mechanism inside if them. They also have some tour guides around explaining some things about them. A bit bland and boring if you are not interested, but nice place to store by if you are close.
I really loved this place at Furtwangen, learn about the clocks and how from wall clock makers become a mechanical music production. lots of helpful people around
Very interesting place. English well spoken. The admission price is cheap.
Most of the records in German. There is a book with English translation of part of texts. But even without of full understanding it's a great place to visit.
