Max Krug @ Marienplatz, Munich, Germany

The Max Krug Company has been making cuckoo clocks in the Black Forest since the 1920’s. Their store, distinctive in its Bavarian blue and gold awning. located on the main pedestrian street halfway between the Marienplatz and the Karlstor Gate in central altstadt Munchen. Max Krug’s cuckoo clocks are hand made from rich woods produced in the Black Forest with quality modern movements. The cuckoo clock is noisy but endlessly fascinating form of time piece characterized by hand-carved wood forest motifs of deer, birds, leaves and pine cones in amazingly ornate patterns around a door from which the tiny cuckoo bird emerges to tweet an hourly alarm. The small bird mechanism was regional smaller version of the German Glockenspiel, the mechanical clock with figures that twirl and move at appointed time.
