This beautifully hand-carved Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Chalet Style has an eight-day movement and plays music on the full hour while the wooden cuckoo calls every half and full hour. It has two great tunes that will play alternatingly: “Edelweiss” and “Der Fröhliche Wanderer” (The Cheerful Wanderer). There is a manual night shutoff to silence the cuckoo during the night. Measuring 17,3 x 13,4 x 8,3 inches (44 × 34 × 21cm), this is one of our best medium-sized cuckoo clocks.
Black Forest Cuckoo Clock Chalet Style Scene
This Black Forest cuckoo clock depicts a beautifully decorated Black Forest scene with a typical mountain farmhouse with wooden shingles. Up on the balcony, you see a group of dancers in traditional costumes who start dancing every time the music plays and also the mill wheel in front of the house. In front of the house is a craftsman doing something you don’t see very often anymore: he’s making wooden shingles for the roof and moves whenever the music plays. This cuckoo clock truly pays homage to a dying craft in the Black Forest.
