I was in Europe last summer and was traveling light and not doing much souvenir buying. My wife wanted a cuckoo clock so I decided I would make that purchase in Rothenburg. I looked in a few shops and ended up making my purchase at the Friese shop. I am so glad I did. Anneliese is a kick in the pants and it was a real delight. The box arrived home before I got back and we enjoy the clock every day.
