Struwwelpeter Museum

The world of Shockheaded Peter and his author comes to life in Frankfurt’s new Old Town.

It was not far from here that Heinrich Hoffmann wrote the famous picture book as a Christmas present for his three-year-old son in 1844. Books, parodies kitsch, and art trace the success story of the international long seller. Grown-ups will get to know the versatile, humorous Dr. Hoffmann as a doctor, psychiatrist, and engaged citizen. There is much for children to discover in the story islands and the game path. And everyone can dress up as a character from the Struwwelpeter book in the theatre room.

Heinrich Hoffmann’s dice game “Mr. Fix von Bickenbach’s journey around the world in 77 days” with its lovingly drawn miniatures provides funny insights into the world around 1880.

Chinese? Hessisch? The store not only stocks Struwwelpeter in the original German version but also in a number of translations, not to mention books about Heinrich Hoffmann and a world trip. Other articles available typically feature the figure from children’s literature that has been marketed longer than any other in the world.
