They have approximately 8,000 watches and clocks on display, collected from all over the world. You will see many Cuckoo Clocks which are typical to this province... More

Interesting site to see the history of German clock - both old and new. Not as big as expected, and smaller as well. But we stayed for a couple of hours looking and discussing all of the different designs.

As we were staying in the black forest it felt right to have a trip to the German Clock Museum; mainly for the cuckoo clocks :-) The museum was bigger than it looked and we spent around 1.5 hours there looking round the collection which included both German and English heritage clocks and music boxes The museum was not what...

The musuem is easy to find, but you should take a metered parking space, to be near to the museum. It is a very nice museum, with audible and visible exponates. There are also some English and French descriptions. Besides the watches and clocks, there is also an area with mechanical music makers. For the best impression take guided tour.... More

Having read previous reviews decided to visit. So glad we did. We really enjoyed it. A leaflet was provided in English to tell you everything and we found it fascinating. If you like clocks or history I would definitely recommend a visit.

This is a very nice museum but I was a little disappointed that everything was written in German. The staff did make sure to give us an English booklet to go through the museum but it did not seem to follow the flow of the museum so was therefore hard to follow. There was a wide display of clocks. Not... More

My wife loved this place. I am not big on museums but it certainly had a fantastic display of clocks from all through history. You had to take a booklet if you only spoke/read English so this made it a little slower. You could easily spend a couple of hours here if you were really into clocks. Great display and... More

I visited it as a university extra activity that they offer to workers, to create your own cocco clock , and after the round, which had a lot of interesting watches and big old ones, that still work until now, some other ones so complicated for their time, really nice day
