  • Interesting part of the day in a relatively large museum with a huge amount of clocks (who has them all on to winds here more than a day job!), attention for a century summer time in Germany, excellent tour by an experienced guide, also via the free Wi-Fi connection and the website the possibility to find out more about the background, in short: a must for anyone who wants to stay up with the times!

  • Visit interesting especially for fans. I would rather see the cuckoo "all'opera", instead they are almost all still. Interesting when, in the basement, a museum guide starts some great and beautiful "Glockenspiel" reproducing music to an amazing sound. Very nice also the corner where children can draw and write on some theme printables.

  • 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
  • Simply overwhelming, this variety of watches and the exciting stories, of the hourglass to the atomic clock. A very informative insight into the history of watchmaking in the Black Forest, highly recommended. My tip, go... ☺
