34 TIMELY SOUVENIR

The cuckoo clock is a Black Forest souvenir to last a lifetime and in the charming cuckoo capital of Triberg, Hubert Herr is run by a ffthgeneration artisan (hubertherr.de), creator of the world’s smallest cuckoo clock. Similarly expert craftsmanship is on show at Oliver Zinapold’s workshop (olisschnitzstube.de), and also at Anton Schneider Söhne in nearby Schonach (cuckooclocks-schneider.com). More modern are the designs at Kult AG in Gaggenau: neon bright and featuring motifs such as skulls and crossbones (from £15; pappuhren.de). Round off your weekend with a slice of Black Forest gâteau made by Triberg confectioner Claus Schäfer using the original 1915 recipe (£3; cafe-schaefer-triberg.de).
