“Time Well Spent”

Deutsche Uhrenmuseum Glashutte
Ranked #1 of 1 things to do in Glashutte
Attraction details
Reviewed September 11, 2018

We spent a little over two hours touring the museum, which is very well presented with English explanations under most displays, several interactive exhibits and an audio guide which cost an extra €2. Parking in the town for the casual visitor is a bit of a hassle as it requires a local permit displayed on the dashboard. The attendant at the museum counter was very helpful in lending us one for the duration of our visit to the museum. It turned out to be an interesting and very informative couple of hours.

..... if you share any enthusiasm for smart and clever watches, for their history and the development - storied from FA Lange to Grossmann and others, this is the place to go to.

We had a great time and its very modern and does not exclude the socialist times from 46 - 1989 but rather addresses the issues.

i saw very very rare watches here, made by lange and grossmann, other legendary watchmakers in germany, especially in glashutte. i also learned about a sad history of glashutte's watch during the world wars.

The museum is excellent, with the tour taking longer than we expected due to the amount of information being provided at each exhibit.

Very interesting, learned a lot. The musuem shop could offer more and be better arranged, but the staff were excellent.

Well worth the tour!

This excellent museum deals with the history of clockmaking, generally, and the history of the clockmaking community of Glashutte, in particular. I found a most interesting display of how Glashutte was stripped of its clock and watchmaking equipment in 1945 as part of Russian reparations, but rebuilt, by memory, from scratch to become a watchmaking centre of East Germany and, since reunification, a producer of luxury watches I can't afford.
One gets there easily by railway from Dresden - a short, pleasant trip with one change of trains.
