This place is a genuine museum of interesting exhibits and fun revolving around puppets and marionettes. The puppet shows were completely booked but we were not disappointed by the museum and charm of the place. If possible, get tickets to the show in advance.

Having grown up in Germany with the puppets from the Augsburger Puppenkiste, this was a must-see and I did not regret it. You may take a walk through the museum which displays not only the history of that puppet theater, but hosts a large number...More

I wondered what this would be like, but it was very interesting. Clearly puppets are a bigger deal in Germany than in Britain, but I found the variety of the characters and props fascinating. The owners have obviously done loads of successful TV shows, though...More
