Interesting - however not what was expected after travelling for over an hour. Situated in a small town with no retail outlets selling or making the clocks. Ideal retail opportunity to add value to the trip.

Large and interesting clock collection. Most of the text is only in german, though there is a pamphlet in many languages. Not really suitable for kids or young adults.
