The Bahnhausle design has been an incredibly popular design since 1850. Friedrich Eisenlohr of Furtwangen, Germany first submitted the design as part of a contest for the Grand Duchy of Baden. His inspiration was a railroad guards house overrun by vines and leaves. When the clock strikes the hour or half-hour the door opens, a cuckoo appears and calls along with the clocks gong strike. After the cuckoo calls, music plays from the symphonic music-box mechanism made in Switzerland. This clock is hand made in the Black Forest in Germany. The mechanical brass movements are driven by three weights and time escapes with the tick of a traditional pendulum. The cuckoo call sound is made by two wooden whistles with bellows inside the clock case.
