Depicting A Swiss Story From 1880
This traditional Heidi House Battery Chalet Cuckoo Clock With Dog & Goat 22cm By ENGSTLER represents a fine example of a genuine, high quality hand-crafted Black Forest cuckoo clock, produced from Schwarzwald in Germany, a region otherwise known as the Black Forest. This endearing chalet style cuckoo clock portrays the story of Heidi & Peter as detailed below:
The classic story of Heidi is well loved and known throughout Switzerland, where the story originated in 1880. In this story Heidi, a little orphan mountain girl learns about life whilst sent to live with her grandfather at his mountain home in the Swiss Alps. In this book, Heidi makes a new friend named Klara, who is ill and spends most of her time confined to a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Heidi's other friend, Peter who is the shepherd for Heidi's grandfather, becomes jealous of Klara and her friendship with Heidi, and so he gets rid of Klaras wheelchair in a bid to spend more time with Heidi. After a storm ravages their little village, Klara is determined to help, and in doing so she realises she no longer needs the wheelchair after all, sparking a big celebration in the stricken village.
Chalet cuckoo clocks are the most famous and common type of cuckoo clocks and are often shaped as alpine houses, featuring carvings representing life in the mountain regions of Europe (around southern Germany, Switzerland and Austria). Chalet style cuckoo clocks can range from simple arrangements of carved features to very detailed scenes with many moving parts.
This cuckoo clock comes with an option of 12 different melodies including:
- Cuckoo waltz
- Bavarian country trader
- Mill in the Black Forest
- Wood chopper
- Happy hiker
- Drink, brother, drink
- There is a Hofbräuhaus in Munich
- For Elise
- Home sweet home
- Salut d'amour
The music is optional and can be turned off with a switch
This beautifully designed clock by ENGSTLER is a delightful timepiece, suitable for those looking for a quality traditional cuckoo clock using carving 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.
