Famous for being the place where the first cuckoo clock was invented

Schwarzwald-Baar-Kreis, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Schönwald im Schwarzwald is a small village located on a sunny high plateau above the Triberg Waterfalls in the Black Forest and is famous for being the place where the first cuckoo clock was invented in 1737.

 

This unique topographical environment with hiking paths and trails make it a haven for nature lovers. The stunning beauty of its forest was an inspiration for its naming (“shön” means beautiful and “wald” means forest). You can experience a varied program of events, traditional hospitality and the many sports, fun, games and entertainment facilities.
