The August Schwer cuckoo clock factory is a family-run business, established in 1885 and located in Schoenwald, in the heart of the Black Forest.
It was in this picturesque Black Forest village, that the first cuckoo clock was built by Franz Ketterer. In 1737 he put together what was to become one of the most famous German products to this day. Hardly any other product has maintained its basic design over such a long time with unfaltering success.
The August Schwer Cuckoo Clock Factory: Main clock factory to the rear of the building, with large cabinetmaker‘s workshop in the lower basement. Showroom and factory shop to the front.
The August Schwer clock factory is famous for its standing as a distinguished premium quality cuckoo clock manufacturer; many award-winning clocks are proof of this claim.
