Who knew? If you’re really into nutcrackers, don’t miss it. I’m not that into them but it was still sort of interesting, NOTE: every hour on the hour is a demonstration of a giant music machine out back so keep your eye on the time....More

This is a must for any nutcracker enthusiast. The most fantastic collection of Lothar Junghaenal nutcrackers in the world. Very reasonable entrance fee.

Enjoyed the hotel and the food was very good. The hotel is located above the town and you can take a trail to walk The hotel has hundreds of nutcrackers, smokers and small figures that are locally made - beautiful!

I had thought I knew "all about nutcrackers"... what a mistake! This well organized museum offers many enjoyable moments to children and adults alike, it is well worth a visit!

Too many artifacts and too little explanation. Children may like the museum, but it wasn't up to musuem standards.
