This was interesting to drop in to have a look at but it is not something that I would go a long way out of my way to see. At only 2 euros it was well priced. Something to “tick off the list” but not...More

Entry per Person 2 Euros, which is ok. The history of the place was presented very sparsely. Inside and behind the clock mechanism they have a souvenir shop. There is nothing more to say about this place.

We had the chance to see this beautiful clock, and at the simbolic price of 2€ per adult you can enter inside and look at the mechanisms. A member of the family is always around to tell you a story of the place. nice!

We stopped in after seeing it from the road, not only was it 40 seconds ahead of time, but the whole thing lasted less than 20 seconds. The house itself is beautiful but €2/person felt like a rip off. 2km down the road in Triberg...More

Totally skippable. I know that 2 € (per person) is not much money but anyway it is not worth it. No explanations whatsoever. We arrived just in time to see the bird come out and the owner would not allow us to go in first...More
