About us

Hi American people!

We would like to introduce ourselves to you. We are a German family with two children and live in the Black Forest. Our names are Hans and Gertrude, our children are called Franz and Brigitte. We live in a traditional Black Forest farmhouse, also we do not work no longer as farmers. Why we have made this site about German cuckoo clocks? That´s an interesting and legitimate question…and we want to give you the answer. Two years ago we have been in the great USA for holidays and visited some relatives in Michigan. There we met many people (most of them were friends of our relatives) that asked us different things about German cuckoo clocks. Some of them have just bought a putative cuckoo clock from the Black Forest. During these conversations we concluded that there are many (especially online-) shops that sell cuckoo clocks which were not produced in Germany. Also we have looked at the ones that they have already bought. And we asserted that most of them have not the quality they should have.

These facts made us so sad that we decided to make a website about real, authentic cuckoo clocks from the German Black Forest – to help our American friends.
