“We've Bought A Clock!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We were touring by car & so visited Triberg hoping to buy a hand made cuckoo clock but didn't know if we would be able to afford one. We came across Oli's and were shown around by a very helpful lady who spoke excellent English. She explained that the genuine hand crafted ones had 'MCC' (Master Carvers' Club) on them. There were many to look at with a broad range of prices so there was something for everyone. We bought one in our price range & have been delighted with it. There have been no problems in the 18 months we've had it. My parents liked it so much that they wanted one. I e-mailed the shop & promptly received a telephone call from Oli himself who made the arrangements there & then & the clock arrived about 7 days later as promised. We went again this year & they remembered us - how about that for service!

Based on or experience we would certainly recommend either simply visiting to look around or buying your own clock.

“Master Woodcarver - Beautiful Cuckoo Clocks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our visit to Oli's workshop was excellent. The second floor of his shop has all the cuckoo's, and if you ask, Oli will take time to give you a tour and tell you about the clock making history and process. We ended up ordering a custom cuckoo that incorporated elements from several different clocks. It took Oli about a month and a half to carve (or at least finish the other clocks he was working on before he could tackle ours). For the quality of clock we received, the price was an absolute bargain. You can judge for yourself if you take Oli's tour and then browse through the House of 1000 clocks. The quality and prices at the other stores just don't compare. Oli's a true artist and a really nice guy as well.
