ASCHAU CLOCK MUSEUM
The forged iron or wooden cog mechanism show how clock technology, craftsmanship, shape and design developed, as well as their regional peculiarities. The history of clocks and the art of clock making is brought to life for visitors by the exhibits in the clock room, which are complemented by descriptions and posters.
A visit to the straw-thatched, listed farmer’s house at Aschau no. 49 is a special experience. The rooms, which have been preserved in original condition, combine with the antique tower clock mechanisms to form an interesting museum. With the display depot for unrestored tower clocks, a wooden campaign chest dating from 1765, the museum which was built in 1894 and the museum’s workshops, together the buildings form a mini museum village.
