Join Globus and Discover Germanys Black Forest Cuckoo Bird

By: Globus

Through the solitary hills of the Black Forest, a 330-pound cuckoo bird pipes its song. Fortunately, this giant is made out of hand-carved wood and is the star of the world’s largest cuckoo clock, the main event at the Eble-Uhren-Park, a clockmaker in Triberg. How big is big? The clock weighs a total of six tons, and the pendulum alone is 26-feet-long. Visitors can get a peak at the cogs and wheels during a tour inside the cuckoo’s farmhouse. Other cuckoo clocks claim to be the “world’s biggest,” but this is the only one in the Guinness Book of World Records. However, one exception might be the world’s biggest chocolate cuckoo clock – 260 pounds of full milk, semi-sweet and white chocolate, put together in 2006 by a cuckoo clock maker and a chocolatier in Saxony-Anhalt. Too delicious to resist, pieces of the clock were auctioned off for charity.

We design our journeys around the stories they will tell. What story might you discover next with Globus and R and B International Travel ?
