One of the best marionette theaters

A small theatre of the "old" way. With classics from the "Augsburger Puppenkiste", and other marionette companies. No chance without reservation!

Great experience, seating arrangement is not designed with children in mind, since you end up with tall adults seated in front of children obstructing the view to the stage. Language used sometimes also too elaborate for kids older than 9 years old. Unfortunately..

As one of the so-called main attractions of Dusseldorf, this theatre was far more ameteurish than you would have expected. Firstly they didn't even take debit or credit cards, secondly they cram everyone who has paid different prices into seats that are almost all the same in an auditorium the size of a classroom. The storytelling and puppetry is rather... More
