A Traditional Chalet Cuckoo Clock From Germany

This delightful chalet Cuckoo Clock is a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced by artisan clock makers TRENKLE from Simonswald in the Black Forest region of Germany.

Measuring 28cm in height*, this beautiful clock portrays a delightful scene in the bavarian countryside, featuring a timber chalet with a unique facade and a shingled roof. Out the front of the chalet is a charming scene where a man is playing an accordion to the right, whilst a tractor is parked to the left of the chalet. In the middle is a dog sitting patiently enjoying the serenity. This fascinating scene also includes a wooden clock dial in the centre of the chalet, and hand painted details including red window shutters and flowers in the windowsill. One striking feature of this particular clock is the feature of 2 Edelweiss flowers on the chalet. The white, star-shaped Edelweiss flower is unique to the Alps - mainly Alpine Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Its name means “Noble White” and represents strength and toughness because it survived the harshest winters at very, very high altitudes. It also represents a symbol for bravery, courage and love. 

Chalet style cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clock, and are often featured in the shape of alpine houses. They usually feature carvings that represent life in the mountain regions of Europe (mainly around Southern Germany, The Black Forest, Switzerland and Austria). Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts (known as automaton). The particular automaton for this clock includes the tractor which moves when the music plays.

The in-built cuckoo of this clock calls the time each hour, with a permanent automatic night shut off that is controlled by a light sensor. When the room is dark enough the cuckoo will no longer sound, allowing you a sound sleep before recommencing as the room lights up again the next morning.

This cuckoo clock comes with an option of 12 different melodies that rotate each hour including: 

  • Music Box Dancer
  • Muss I Denn Zum (Wooden Heart)
  • Lara's Theme - Dr Zhivago
  • Mühle im Schwarzwald (Black Forest Mill)
  • Barcarole
  • Ich weiss nicht, was soll es bedeuten (The Lorelei)
  • Oh My Papa
  • Fröhlicher Wanderer (Happy Wanderer)
  • Que Sera
  • Edelweiss
  • Für Elise (Pour Elise)
  • Clementine

The music is optional and can be turned off with a switch

This delightful timepiece by TRENKLE is suitable for those looking for a quality cuckoo clock using methods that have been practised for hundreds of years.

Benefits of a Quartz Battery Operated Cuckoo Clock

Quartz cuckoo clocks operate differently to mechanical cuckoo clocks. Quartz simply means the clock movement is battery operated. One benefit of a quartz operated cuckoo clock is that they are easier to manage and more hands off than a traditional mechanical cuckoo clock, as they do not require to be wound, and often feature ornamental or decorative weights and chains. 

Quartz cuckoo clocks are available with or without music; the models that come with music play 12 different tunes that alternate each hour. Some models feature the sound of a real cuckoo bird in a forest environment. 

Most quartz cuckoo clocks feature a light sensor for automatic night shut off to automatically mute any sound when the room gets dark.
