  • Even though museum is small, it has wonderful collection of clocks. Most of the ancient clocks are still working and it's a marvel to watch them. The fee is is worth the tour and the handbooks to read about the clocks are a great help for non Germans.
  • 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.
