The Cuckoo-Clocks

Anton Schneider’s cuckoo clock range offers the three important categories of traditional carvings, chalets and also more modern Black Forest clock variants, in addition to individual productions commissioned by renowned artists. Some models can also be ordered with quartz movement, but then they do not have a VdS certificate because this is only available with a mechanical movement.


Our company is located amidst the enchanting mountains and valleys of the Black Forest in southwestern Germany. For decades, the employees of Anton Schneider Söhne have felt connected to this area.

Not only does the Black Forest serve as a source of inspiration for our models and work, but also for countless different materials that can be found in our clocks. From this historically known region of woodworking, the traditional methods are passed down and developed from one generation to the next, so that with each clock we build is also a symbol of tradition and natural beauty.

Schonach has a long tradition in dealing with the surrounding nature. For a very long time, the people of Schonach have cherished their natural resources, thus ensuring a sustainable balance between human and nature. This guiding principle is very much reflected in our clocks.
