Black Forest weather houses are traditional wooden figures from the Black Forest, a region in southwestern Germany. These small houses are equipped with a barometer that moves a simple mechanical figure. The characteristic design includes typical features of a Black Forest house such as a steep roof, windows, and a door.


Their operation is based on changes in air pressure, which affect the movement of the figure. A rising figure indicates bad weather, while a falling figure indicates good weather. These weather houses are not only practical devices but also symbols of Black Forest culture and craftsmanship.


Many are still handcrafted by local artisans, giving each piece a unique touch. Despite the spread of modern weather forecasting technologies, Black Forest weather houses still have a nostalgic charm and are highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of traditional art.
