  • Actually there are two main stores, plus various subsidiaries, facing each other, one is the source, the other the second born to expand the premises. It's worth a visit to both, even if the products are the same. Here is always Christmas, you return children and have fun just watching.

  • I could buy everything from there. In there are little figures that are common in Austria, Germany etc. In the figure is a hole and you put smoking tablet in the figure. Then smoke comes out from that...  more »
  • Definitely worth to get there, I was with the kids in January, when the street was snow! Accordingly, the atmosphere is generally fantastic. Inside it is very pretty and festive, regarding exhibits tell the following: many different beautiful ornaments and toys that are really fun to watch, but most pleasantly surprised that I saw Christmas toys from my childhood. In the Soviet Union, when good toys were scarce, very valued and were very light and very rare beautiful German toys of the GDR, so we had a lot of toys and a few of those I saw in the Museum immediately remembered))). Also in the Museum you can buy a lot of toys, toys are beautiful, the average price in the region of 20 euros.
