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.

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!

Despite my co-travellers' protestations that this was just a collection of old clocks, this museum comprehensively catalogues the history of time. There is the science in the early clocks and mechanisms tracking movement of the moons, stars and planets; artwork from all eras on and in the craftsmanship of the clocks; the poetry of motion; the politics of creating calendars;...

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.
