We will first show you typical Black Forest crafts, such as wood carving, straw weaving, glass-making and clock-making. Of course, you will also get familiarised in an amusing manner with the traditional Black Forest costumes. Furthermore, you will get some information about clock-making and the clock distribution system. You will see rudimentary clocks with wooden wheels, clocks with lacquered dials, some with moving figurines, flute clocks and mechanical orchestras. You will become aware of the importance of the perfectly organised clock distribution system, when you see the numerous international clock models. You will also become acquainted with the history of barrel organ manufacturing and you will be informed about the gramophones used during the “Imperial Period”, the so-called calliopes.
