Margarete Steiff Museum, Giengen an der Brenz
(4.5/5 based on 140+ 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 children, the Museum is an absolute must. It will tell the full story of the Steiff Teddy bear. Beautiful animals. For entry, the prices keep within limits. The shop is very nice.

  • Very nice place for families with children. However, a little too modern-looking compared to the history of the place and importance to the world of toys. Friendly and patient. In the Interior tells the narrator of the history of these toys and soft toys development. In the Middle we have the opportunity to exhibit how handmade are teddy bears and what professional hand you have to have this to look as look-that is beautiful. There is a restaurant with a focus on the kids, and of course ... the price in the Middle, however, transfixed and you really have to savory pay for each toy. A ticket of admission to 10 euro...na place is parking (fee required) in close proximity is the "outlet" (high price), and a factory, on the site where, unfortunately, there is no admission

  • Many Steiff animals staged in loving stories are only the beginning of the Museum. The highlight for all large and small children: Steiff animals as far as the eye can see to be touched, memories and dreams. The shining eyes everywhere acknowledge: children's dreams come true here. All around a successful experience, that meets not only the world-famous works of Margarete Steiff, but the everyday for the duration of your visit can be simply forget.

  • 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.
