Introducing Jim Knopf, Urmel and friends

The whole family will enjoy watching the “stars on strings” in what is surely the world’s most famous puppet theatre or in Die Kiste, the puppet theatre museum. These marionettes are still loved by children today and they instantly remind their parents of their own childhood. Jim Knopf, Urmel, Tomcat Mikesch and Monty Spinneratz look forward to welcome you to their historical home.


The old quarter of Augsburg is perfect for strolling, soaking up the atmosphere and admiring the picturesque backdrop. See the town hall and the Fuggerei, for instance, and the many other highlights Augsburg has to offer.
