Not quite what we were expecting, but interesting enough. Good drive to the area, coming from the North. Parking was a bit challenging to find. Not alot to choose from and museum was not clearing identified as being the clock museum.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit - especially the sweet woman who told us (in English) about the instrumentals (calliope, old wooden "juke box," organ grinder instrument). We spent at least two hours here. Most of the descriptions are in German, but the little book given to us when we entered was very helpful! I loved that the clocks (especially the... More

My better half is a clock collector so this was heaven to him. And I adored the history as well as the presentations from the staff of the unusual musical pieces.

Driving from Freiburg to Baden-Baden through the Black Forest was lots of fun. This museum is a great point of interest and certainly worth one hour of your time.

This is your place if clocks are your thing. Located in a small town in the middle if cuckoo clock territory. Easy, one hour museum.

The museum exhibits the products of the local clock industry, mainly in the 19th and 20th centuries. Note especially the turn-of-the-century fads such as the giraffe clock faces.

We decided that we would do this little adventure on our own without our friends, who live here. What a great place we spent 2 hours here without any problem at all and as far as I am concerned a must for anyone who has a clock or a watch. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent here and the volunteers... More

We were impressed by just how much fun we had at a museum filled with clocks! Great museum, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and amazing pieces dating back centuries. Such a fun way to spend our morning. There were booklets for the kids to fill out (a kind of scavenger hunt) and many different exhibits that kept their interest. Definitely... More
