Cuckoo-clock country. That’s how you feel once you enter the area in the Central Black Forest where cuckoo clocks have been manufactured for centuries. Cuckoo clock shops will be popping up everywhere, following you while you are making your way through the Central Black Forest. World’s largest cuckoo clock can be found here as well. And not only that. There is also world’s widest cuckoo clock, world’s tallest cuckoo clock and world’s oldest cuckoo clock. A quarter before each full hour people line up in front of the clock waiting for the cuckoo to come out for its hourly appearance.
Touring with Black Forest Tours means you will not only visit the places where the first cuckoo clocks got invented. If you are interested we also take you to one of the last remaining cuckoo clock factories in the Black Forest. A place only a few visitors to the Black Forest get to see. Here you can see how a Black Forest cuckoo clock is being built – from the carving of the wood to the coloring of the cuckoo living inside. Each manual step can be watched. The clocks here are official Black Forest cuckoo clocks. This means they come with a certificate and lifetime warranty. If you are lucky the owner of the cuckoo clock factory is present and can sign on the back of your unique Black Forest cuckoo clock.
