Welcome to German Clock Museum

German Clock Museum

Although you may find yourself inundated by cuckoo clocks everywhere you look in the Black Forest, the German Clock Museum's large collection of timepieces is the most comprehensive of its kind, and offers over 8,000 examples of clocks going back 150 years. Cuckoo clocks have been made in the Black Forest region since the early 18th century, and much of their development occurred there. Tours are conducted at 11am by appointment, and there are free English guidebooks available.

German is the official language. English is also widely spoken and understood.

The unit of currency is the Euro (EUR), divided into 100 cents. ATMs and exchange bureaux are widely available. The major credit cards are becoming more widely accepted in many large shops, hotels and restaurants, although Germans themselves prefer to carry cash. Travellers cheques are best cashed at exchange bureaux, as banks often won't change them. The quickest and most convenient way to change money is to obtain cash from one of the ATM machines that are ubiquitous features on all German streets. Banks are closed on weekends, but exchange bureaux at airports and main railway stations are open daily from 6am to 10pm.

Opening Times
Daily 9am-6pm April through October; 10am-5pm November through March.
GMT +1 (GMT +2 between the last Sunday in March and the last Sunday in October).
