Oh you've so got to go to this place, it takes you back to being a child again. First of all you get a short talk on how Steiff came about whilst looking at a small stage that had moving articles on it. You next...More

I didn't had any expectations about this museum but I liked it a lot. The story at the beginning was really cute. There are a lot of Steiff soft toys, so look for the details they put into the scenes ;)

I have been several times to the Steiff Museum, and it always fascinates me. Don't go if you are not a child at heart! You need to allow your imagination to view this museum. The presentation of the story of Margarete Steiff is fascinating, and...More

Easy to find, just follow the painted paw prints on the pavements. Very reasonable entry price of 10 euros for adults and 8 euros for over 60's (sorry didn't look for children's prices). Plenty of space to leave coats and free lockers to leave bags...More

It took a while to find this modern day museum because there was very poor sign posts that lead directly to the building. It's easy to spot the teddy bear statue on the roundabout, however none of the roads lead to the museum. We drove...More
