They have 2 different kind of watches, mechanical (bigger & heavier) and battery operated. After browsing around for almost an hour, one can easily suspect that the later are China made. Bought one only to see the initial delightful sound turning into a twisted electronical cacophony in a month only. It was expensive, heavy and cumbersome for air travel and... More

The stores really are full of clocks and are really museums on their own. If you go to the one in the guide books with the "largest coocoo clock in the world" the 2 euro admission fee is not worth it. Just wander around the store instead.

The house itself is an attraction though when you walk in you realize it is standard tourist trap selling clocks (including Chinese made...) Might as well see it if you are walking the town but not worth a special journey

We came in knowing that we wanted a clock, the woman that helped us was very attentive and helpful. We ended up with a medium sized clock that we will ship back to the US. Since we were shipping, we decided to buy a bunch of other items like beer steins and misc gifts. They have a ton of stuff... More

I wish I could go there back again and over and over again. So many lovely pleasant elegant cuckoo clocks with different range of prices that everyone could afford to buy one. So many souvenirs with a lot of ideas and varieties. If you are around there you must visit it.

As expected, this is a great place for tourists to spend some money and help the local economy:) They have a wide variety of cuckoo clocks, as well as other "souvenirs" to buy. Just looking is fun!

And the people in the store are so welcoming and friendly and tells loads of history about the clocks and its making. A place full of clocks and the cuckoo birds chirping form... More

Bought my cuckoo clock here last year, Its a fabulous store and their customer service is excellent. Yes, there are cheaper stores in the area but the quality is not even close. If you want a genuine handmade Bavarian clock that is going to last, this is the place to go!

It is worth visiting this shop just to see the many different varieties of clocks (mainly cuckoo clocks) that they have on sale. Some of the more expensive clocks are intricate works of art and it is worth checking these out just to see the level of skill and expertise required to create such clocks. Prices vary widely to suit... More
