Wasn't worth 28 euro. Not at all, there was a thing at the beginning that looked like a haunted house. Just don't go there.

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.
