On a whim, we visited this toy museum near the town center. Up spiraling staircases you access circular rooms with all sorts of old lead, tin, caolin , lineol, wood toys and dolls and trains, windups, etc. Marvelous craftsmanship - the Germans know how to...More

The museum is located in the tower of the Old City Hall. For 4,00 € you can climb the staircase or use a life and examine toys 50-100 years old and older. The museum is rather small, the collection is restricted... I had an idea...More

Really loved this little place. It is over 4 floors of a tower and does not have loads of exhibits or take too long to view. It does however have character and is a little oasis of calm in what is a busy city. Only...More
