“Musical Clock”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We really liked this. It was the first time that we had ever seen a clock that played music like a big cuckoo clock. We went at noon and watched it for about 15 minutes while the stuff was moving. Really nice little park and easy to find.

“not authentic german food & slow service”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

We were in town visiting relatives and went on a Wednesday night. Only two other people in the restaurant, which was hot & sticky, with one very nice & friendly waitress but she was very slow. We were there for over 2 hours. The brauts are not authentic and are not made on premises. I expected more from a family owned and run German restaurant. The black forest cake was not fresh. the tea was old and warm. Very disappointed!

“Wonderful Clock!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

At selected time intervals, a door opens up and animated figures which reflect on the various stages of New Ulm history, perform on a rotating stage, as music is played. Real neat.
