I saw these dark-themed Kuckucksuhren (cuckoo clocks) -- one of Germany's most famous souvenirs -- in Freiburg, a stronghold of Catholicism.
Close to the well-known Freiburg Cathedral, the
â€œRahmenatelier Springmannâ€ manufactures these unique handiwork Kukucksuhren. I've seen many variations of cuckoo clocks, but these designs with skulls, guns and bones coupled with strange pictures of animals with hand grenades were a unique twist, and really quite shocking.
