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.

  • I was there with my two daughters in preschool children. They were thrilled by the Museum. The didactic treatment was so that even children could understand the story of Fr. Steiff and the teddy bears in this age. With the children I was admitted at the very long line (German unity day) together with other families. So also the waiting time of 10 minutes for the children was very tolerable

  • 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.
