Right next to the information building. you could spent quite some time going thru all the different levels. The room with the caliopi and music boxes was the most interesting set i have seen.

While walking around town, we found this shop. There are more cuckoo clocks here but of a cheaper quality. There are many items to browse. It is a small store, but worth your time to check out.

To be honest we weren't very sure about this place. But we gave it a try and we really enjoyed ourselves. Make sure you bring some EURO change so that you can use it to play the calliope machines. They were pretty adorable.

We went through with our two teenage children. It was really interesting and lots of things to see, but a bit disappointing that you had to pay extra if you wanted to see certain displays actually work.

From the outside it doesn't look like much. Co-located with the visitors center, it is easy to find. Once inside you will find room after room of interesting displays. There are clocks, musical machines, and a lot more. Worth the visit.

The Black Forest Museum (Schwarzwaldmuseum) in Triberg is very interesting. You are able to see examples of the culture going back hundreds of years. Cuckoo Clocks, glass blowing, straw weaving and musical instruments and the making of them are all on display. It was fascinating...More

We really loved this museum. If you are a history buff this is a must. Not only does it give you history on the city, but it shows you a look back at the culture of the area. There is also a part that gives...More
