  • The extraordinary Clock Museum is worth a visit. It also the oldest KARPOVA presented very informative clocks from the black forest. We recommend a tour to take part.

  • A visit is absolutely recommended if one is in the area of Furtwangen im Schwarzwald. Incredibly, what you get to see here and how much you can learn about past times of watchmaking. It's a pity that all this is past.

  • 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
