Here you will find a great museum in the “small” Saarland. The Saarland Clock Museum is one of the few museums in Europe, which shows the development of timekeeping from the Antiquity to the Present: From the elementary watches over tower- and pageantry-watches to the pocket- and wrist-watches of the presence.



On January 16, 2019 begins in Filmhaus Saarbrücken a series of lectures about the time “Booooring!”. The program is available on the website of the University of Saarland.

The next event is the Stammtisch on Wednesday, February 6, 2019 from 18 AM. Guests are welcome!

On Wednesday, 20 February 2019 Calendar “Der Zeiten bunter Lauf 2019” will be presented at the museum. In this book you will find small stories about the development of timekeeping from the Saarland Clock Museum. “That’s splendid set, delicious, winking feuilleton!” People meet at 18 o’clock to the book of the Vereins für kulturelle und geschichtliche Arbeit im Bisttal e.V. to get to know.

After initial exhibition “Clockwork” the watch works by internationally renowned artist Martin Riches one of his works remained in the Saarland Clock Museum:


The watch is a fascinating work of art and is also a tribute to John Harrison, the first succeeded early 18th century to design watches, which made an accurate determination of longitude on sailing ships possible.

The PDF file regarding the schedule for 2019 can be downloaded here.

Since 16 November 2016 our special “iron clocks from the 16th to the 18th Century” is opened.


We often get requests for watchmakers who can repair old and antique clocks. If you want to do something themselves, feel free to come to our regular tables that take place every first Wednesday of the month from 18 am in the normal case. On the other hand, you can also contact our club members, who can be found in this list.
