Margarete Steiff Museum, Giengen an der Brenz

(4.6/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Margarete Steiff founded the Steiff Toy Company in 1880, and Margarete Steiff Museum pays homage to her greatest legacy: plush toys. Steiff was known to build all the toy animal prototypes herself. She insisted that the toys be made of natural, safe materials, and her company motto was "Only the best is good enough for children." The company continues to make toys by hand using natural materials for the fur and eyes. You can distinguish a Steiff toy by the button sewn into the animal's ear.

  • With great attention to detail and great canned Museum around the famous Teddy bear and all the other animals by Steiff.

  • The Museum is very playful set, especially children and fans of the Steiff Empire will get their money. The price of €10 is in order. The Museum offers free cloakroom and lockers as well as enough play facilities for children!

  • I organize the visit with my two children. The tour lasts about an hour and you can still visit the demonstration workshops and the store then. The tour consists of a series of room with vending machines and games of light. Children feast because they can touch everything, and stuffed animals are particularly soft and well made. It is a high place of the industrial and artisanal work. On the other hand, the price of the fluff is quite high. There will be arguments for not to give to children who want to buy everything! The outside outlet store is a bit cheaper.

  • My wife and I visited here in September 2014 and spent 90 minutes on the tour and looking through the shop, another 30 minutes would have been good to spend a bit more time walking through and another 30-60 minutes if you're eating there (prices look very reasonable and food looks good). If you have children with you I'd allow another 60 minutes at least as there is a lot to do for all ages but especially children. The children we saw there were having a great time. Parking was free when we were there, the gates opened to let you out without needing a ticket but this may only be on weekends. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, it's close to a train station and the autobahn so access is easy.
