The cuckoo clock reloaded.

Nothing quite captures the character of the Black Forest and Baden-Württemberg like the cuckoo clock. Its design has remained largely unchanged since first being invented in the mid-19th century. The two largest examples in the world can be seen today in Schonach and Triberg, the most famous cuckoo-clock towns. You can trace the history of this iconic Black Forest timekeeper at the German Clock Museum in Furtwangen and on the German Clock Route in the Black Forest.
