For the 16th time in a row, the Black Forest Clock Association (VdS), based in Schonach, is organizing the annual election for the “Black Forest Clock of the Year”. The election will take place this year on the premises of Dorotheenhütte in Wolfach. The starting signal for the watch selection was on 26/05/2017. The event ends on 06/01/2018. There are 14 watches from the most renowned Black Forest watch manufacturers to choose from. The spectrum of watch designs ranges from “Modern” to “Classic-Traditional”. As every year, the event is a public vote. Visitors can vote for their personal favorite watch and, by casting their vote, are automatically entered into a raffle. A valuable hand-carved cuckoo clock worth 930 euros will be raffled.

The election will take place in the rooms of the Dorotheenhütte Glashüttenweg 4 in 77709 Wolfach. Opening hours are daily, including Sundays and holidays, from 9 am to 5:30 pm. The Dorotheenhütte is the last active mouth blowing hut in the Black Forest. You can watch the glassmakers and glass cutters at work on site.

In addition, the glassworks is known far beyond the borders of Baden-Württemberg for its Christmas village, which is decorated all year round. In the immediate vicinity is the “Black Forest Open Air Museum Vogtsbauernhof”. This museum is one of the most visited museums in Baden-Württemberg. A visit to the Dorotheenhütte and the museum can be made without difficulty in one day. We would be pleased if you would participate in our event in large numbers.
