The largest cuckoo clock in the world (as per the Guinness Book of World Records) in Triberg is so big that you can walk right into it, and you must, to be able to admire its amazing engineering both from the outside as well inside! The cuckoo hiding in the upper window of this clock is a real heavyweight! Measuring 4.5 metres in length, it also weighs a hefty 150 kilograms. The bird resides, where else, in Germany’s Black Forest in a faithful, hand-built reproduction of a traditional cuckoo clock. Scaled up by a factor of 60, it is probably the world’s largest of its kind.
This massive clock was designed by Black Forest clock-makers Ewald and Ralf Eble, and is a celebrated example of traditional cuckoo clock craftsmanship of the region. The clock chimes every half an hour, so make sure you stick around for it – you won’t be disappointed!
