Although Sonneberg is not technically located Bavaria, you can still travel there with a regional day ticket for Bavaria or the day ticket for Franconia-Thuringia region. Visiting the town on the southern border of the Thuringian Forest is bound to make your children’s eyes light up! To start with, it was once home to the world’s largest centre for toy making, which is why it was called “Santa’s workshop”. This era can be experienced by taking a historical city tour about toys.

Today it is home to the German Toy Museum – worth a visit for children and adults alike! The best thing is that presenting a regional day ticket for Bavaria means you receive a discount on the entry price. 







Hi! It's me, Bruno the dachshund. I love museums where you can learn things and have a whole lot of fun at the same time. Here in Sonneberg, I took part in the big quiz that led me around the toy museum. I concentrated hard and gave the right answers to all of the questions. Now all I have to do is wait until the end of the year, when the final winners will be picked. With a bit of luck, they'll pick my name and I'll get a prize. Have you made sure your names are in the hat?
