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

I liked very much the way that Steiff products are presented. The story of Margarete Steiff is very interesting. All items are made of high quality materials. Of course it's possible to buy Steiff products.

It is a little bit in the middle of nowhere but if there are any excursions, it would be from Ulm.

We went on a coach organised trip but I'm sue it would say about train travel on Steiff web site. The museum is sited in a place called Giengen if that is any help.
