Precious craftsmanship in the Black Forest

Maintaining and living traditions. Sustaining old craftsmanship and passing it on. Seeing and experiencing culture and traditions.

Since 1799, Organs are produced in Waldkirch in the Elztal and shipped to the whole world. Nowadays it is Organ-builders Heinz Jäger and Wolfgang Brommer, who invite guests to learn about their work and have their doors open for visitors.

Old mills are still grinding. In the Elztal and Simonswäldertal the “Mühlentag” is still celebrated and you can see hundreds of years old mills in action. When walking along the Mill-Hiking Trail, you can hear the rattling sound of the old Wehrlehof-mill. You will come past the heart piece, the Oil-mill, at the end of the hiking trail.

Along the German Clock-builders Road there are plenty of small manufactures, which still build the famous Kuckucks clocks by hand with lots of passion and precision. The worlds’ biggest Kuckucks clocks can be visited between Hornberg, Triberg and Schonach.

Not only experience the “Time” of the Black Forest, also enjoy your time here.

Organ Building

Since 1799, Organs are produced in Waldkirch in the Elztal and shipped to the whole world. Nowadays it is Organbuilders Heinz Jäger and Wolfgang Brommer, who invite guests to learn about their work and have their doors open for visitors. On this picture, you see the talented hands of organ builder Wolfram Stüetzle in action. Some of the churches in Waldkirch are home to these spectacular organs. A very special one is the Walcker Organ in the old St. Margarethen church.

Cuckoo-clocks – the time is different in the Black Forest

Along the German clock-builders road there are plenty of small manufactures, which still build the famous Cuckoo-clocks by hand with lots of passion and precision. The worlds’ biggest Cuckoo-clocks can be visited between Hornberg, Triberg and Schonach. Not only experience the “Time” of the Black Forest, also enjoy your time here.
Here you see the Black Forest Clock Museum in Hornberg.

Schnefeln – A matter of patience

In the Black Forest you still see wooden shingles as wall- and roof cladding on old farm houses. This very old and rare craft is still practised by the so called “Schindel Karle” with lots of experience and persistence.
How easily the farmers used to build every-day utensils from wood can be seen during the “Holzschnefler” Days in Bernau in the Back Forest.

 

The craft with the eye
