Rothenburg op de Tauber Doll Museum

Imagine my excitement when we heard about this during our day in Rothenburg! After walking along the city wall we spent some time in the little town and my mom and little sister and I went to the doll museum.
A lot of the photos are blurry or have reflections from the glass, but thankfully you could actually take pictures...just without flash.

Ironic occupation for a little hedge-piggy!

Darling vintage cewpie dolls!

Very solemn wooden dolls.

Marie Antoinette

A nursery of life-sized dolls!

...dead doll?
these ones made me smile.

doll-sized toy store!

Cake shop =D

Sweet little bower.

Some amazing antique molds and models.

Antique asian dolls.

Original kawaii? ;)

Fairytale puppets

Loads of little markets and candy stores.

Elegant paper theatre

German fairytale books :)

This was a huge doll house! ...with a wedding on the lawn.

She has a much nicer dressing table than I do ;)

Again, lovely antique dolls - my grandma has some similar.


So much detail!

Kind of scary.

Little play tea set

Really fancy dresses

I found this...interesting...

Have you ever been to a doll museum before? This one was in an old little house or shop, covering several floors but quite small and containing so many beautiful dolls!

Don't you just love Rothenburg? Whenever we would go on holidays with my parents we always stayed there overnight, because itr was right in the middle of where we could go (we always went camping in Italy, Switzerland or Austria, by car). Unfortunately it was always just for a night though, and in the evening, so I never got to see this museum!
