In the atmospheric setting of the 400-year-old Jägerhof you can admire both Saxon folk art and one of the largest puppet theatre collections in the world. The puppet theatre collection is one of the largest and most important collections of its kind in the world. Here you can immerse yourself in the poetic, dramatic, magical and comic world of historic puppet theatre.
The collection's holdings range from 200-year-old marionettes and fairground hand puppets to Bauhaus theatre figures and items from contemporary puppet theatre. Among the most valuable exhibits are figures and theatre sets from several 19th-century mechanical world theatres. No other European museum has objects of this quality and diversity.
