Augsburger Puppenkiste

The Augsburger Puppenkiste is a marionette theater in Augsburg. It gained nationwide prominence with productions, such as “Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer” and “Urmel aus dem Eis”.

It is located at the former Heilig-Geist-Spital in the historic center of Augsburg. Since 1948, the Augsburger Puppenkiste has been producing theatrical adaptations of fairy tales and serious plays. In 1953, it began producing television series. The name Puppenkiste (puppet box or puppet chest) goes back to the founder of the theater, Walter Oehmichen. When his first puppet theater was destroyed in a fire, he wanted to create a new one which was easily transportable. He came up with the idea of a wooden transport box, in which he stored all of his puppets and the actual puppet theater. Since 2001, the Puppenkiste also hosts a museum displaying the most famous marionettes and special exhibitions dedicated to specific topics changing every four months.
