The History of the HERR family and their cuckoo clocks


The HERR family has a long tradition of Black-Forest cuckoo clock making.

Already at the beginning of the 19th century, the two brothers Andreas and Christian HERR, born in 1812 and 1814, were making cuckoo clocks in a farmhouse nearby the town of Triberg in the Black Forest of Germany.

This skill and the know-how about making of cuckoo clocks has then been passed on to the next generation, Eduard HERR. He was the one who then moved from outside of Triberg downtown, bought land and built his workshop on Nussbacherstrasse.

His son HUBERT HERR continued the work of Eduard HERR, bought additional land in the middle of Triberg, Hauptstrasse 8, which is still now the home of the company, enlarged the workshop and moved upwards step by step.

HUBERT HERR was a master woodcarver and all wooden cuckoo clock cases and carvings were already made in those days in the small factory and workshop.
HUBERT HERR had five children and they all worked at the factory and workshop.
Production increased from year to year and already in those days the cuckoo clocks were shipped to many countries around the world.

Today the HUBERT HERR cuckoo clock factory is managed by the 5th generation, Klaus HERR, Reinhard HERR and Hugo HERR.

Worldknown, HUBERT HERR cuckoo clocks are of finest quality and workmanship.
HUBERT HERR is the only manufacturer of cuckoo clocks in Germany making the movements, carvings and also the clock cases in its own premises.
