  • It's a very interesting thing to visit, if you are in the area anyway. I would not drive miles and miles to see the clock, but if you are nearby... It's definitely worth a visit. And if you really really like Cuckoo clocks... Well I guess that it would be well worth a longer drive.. ;)
  • Charming! My customers (I design cuckoo clocks and have them made by Schneider in Schonach) often ask me how a cuckoo clock works. Inside this Clock is a movement 5Ox larger than life, so one can see how the gears work to operate the time, below, and cuckoo.
  • Good but not worth to travel cross country
  • You get to see the inner workings of the clock before you go outside to see it cuckoo. I found the inside more interesting the out!! In the winter the add on features do not operate, just the bird.
  • Wonderful staff that is very informative about the workings of the clock. It's interesting to see all of the internal workings of the clock.
