Some may argue that the Swiss are the best time keepers, but I think that when it comes to cuckoo clocks, German-made clocks are superior. After all, the German cuckoo clock, featuring a chirping bird, did originate in the Black Forest. Yes, the Swiss are excellent woodworkers, but the intricate wood and paint details on Black Forest clocks are equally impressive.
Some of the most notable examples of German cuckoo clocks are currently housed in museums. Exemplary by Johannes Wildi crafted in 1780 is currently housed in the Deutsches Uhrenmuseum. Other cuckoo clocks dating back to the mid 1700s are also on display in the same museum.
