The August Schwer cuckoo clock factory is a family-run business, estab- lished in 1885 and located in Schoenwald, in the heart of the Black Forest.
It was in this picturesque Black Forest village, that the first cuckoo clock was built by Franz Ketterer. In 1737 he put together what was to become one of the most famous German prod- ucts to this day. Hardly any other product has maintained its basic design over such a long time with unfaltering success.
