Germany, being one of the most visited and historic countries in the world, is situated in the heart of Europe. While Germany may be famously known for its Oktoberfest each year, Germany has much more to bring to tourists and locals alike. Those lucky enough to travel to Germany will find themselves immersed in a culture of historic castles, cathedrals and some of the most lively beer halls the world has to offer.
Oktoberfest and German Beer Steins
Oktoberfest traditionally begins the third weekend in September and ends the first Sunday of October. Oktoberfest started as a royal wedding celebration in 1810, but within a few decades, the festival grew from sparse amusements including horse races and small beer stands, to a full-fledged funfair equipped with their signature beer halls and roller coasters.
Limited edition beer steins are considered one of the best gifts to give or receive in Germany and our souvenirs will bring you one step closer to feeling like you've transported into a German beer hall. Many of our steins are one of kind and part of a collectible series.
Cuckoo Clock History
The origins of the Cuckoo clock so widely known today can be traced back to the Black Forest in Germany. The long harsh winter months played as work hours for those blessed with dexterity and creativity. During the winter, neighbors would compete with each other to see who could craft the most detailed and unique clocks.
Cuckoo clocks have come a long way from its humble beginnings, but each of our clocks still houses its rich German roots. Bring a part of Germany's history into your home or office with one of our Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks.
