The Struwwelpeter Museum features memorabilia of the children's
books, Struwwelpeter ('
), which were written and
illustrated in the early 19th century by Dr. Heinrich Hoffman.
These tales reflect the draconian parenting style of this bygone
age, although today modern kids are more likely to be amused by the
macabre morality of stories like the boy who played with scissors
and cut off all his fingers! The museum has a children's theatre
where kids can enjoy watching a performance of stories such as 'The
little dog Schnuffel' or 'The Little Elephant' or children can
dress up in costumes and play in the playroom.
