We went because all the reviews were positive but I had a few reservations. We really enjoyed it. If you don't read German, get a book in your language from the front desk. Ignore the order the book recommends unless you can figure it out - we couldn't. It worked much better for us to go through the exhibits in... More

Comprehensive collection of clock development over the years. Quizzes for both young and older children filled two hours. Fascinating mechanical musical instruments were an added bonus. Frequent guided demonstrations. Great collection of postcards in the shop.

I enjoyed myself at the museum. Even though it was rather small (3 levels) but I still took almost 3 hours to see everything! There was just so much to read and learn and see! They have free tours but you need to check the timings for the language you are comfortable in. There is a very intricate clock which... More

Great assortment of clocks. Really appreciated the booklet with quiz they gave to our children age 10 and 12. They had them totally engaged going around the museum looking for answers. Well done.

If you are in the Black Forest and like clocks then this place is great! Even for people that don't have an interest in clocks (like us), it was a very well presented museum with good information. We spent two hours there easily.

First of all if you are a cuckoo clock lover or indeed any type of lover of watches or clocks then you are in for a big treat. It is a hard place to find if I am honest but once inside it is well documented and has everything you need to know about clocks, watches etc. All the main... More

The museum has a comprehensive collection of clocks showing how things have changed thoughout the years and the tour is great and informative. Would definitely recommend checking it out! Loved looking at some of the older time pieces and the effort that went into making them is astounding! The bus trip over the mountain to get from Triberg to the... More

My wife and I visited this museum on April 24, and it was fantastic! We arrived just before 11 AM, paid for the tour, and were the only two on it! So, we got the English version and it was great! Very interesting and a phenomenal collection of clocks and watches. It was very cool!
