Bing meeting will take place on 30/31/10/2021

In consultation with our collector friends and fellow exhibitors, we have decided to hold this year's Bing meeting. After a long period of deprivation without a common exchange, the Von-Busch-Hof in Freinsheim offers enough space and distance to be able to hold the event safely for all participants. The 2G+ rules for Rhineland-Palatinate apply. If no more than 25 non-immunized participants or spectators are present at the same time at an event, no more than ten if warning level 2 is reached, and no more than five if warning level 3 is reached, and otherwise only vaccinated, recovered persons and children up to and including 11 years of age, neither the mask requirement nor the distance requirement apply. In this case, only the contact obligation (e.g. through pre-reserved tickets) and the testing obligation (for non-vaccinated persons) apply to the event. For the Bing meeting we have a corresponding hygiene concept. Early pre-registration as exhibitor or visitor will facilitate our planning.

Sustainability at the SPIELZEUGHAUS Museum & Café

Influenced by professions in environmental protection/recycling and pedagogy, it was clear to us from the beginning that we would also like to have a sustainable concept and today we are happy about the support and confirmation by TourCert as a sustainable destination.

The exciting mediation of German-Jewish cultural and industrial history is an important, socially sustainable contribution. The owner and director of the museum, Marion Groll, relies on the exchange of different generations who discover the museum together. For example, when the steam engine moves and drives something, it exerts an incredible fascination on all visitors. Some grandparents then enthusiastically explain to their grandchildren how the machine works. We opened the toy museum and ice cream parlour in April 2011. This was preceded by the renovation of the old town ensemble, originally consisting of four buildings, which was carried out with a great deal of personal effort and a sure instinct for history. Almost all of the technical equipment is second-hand and was comprehensively checked, repaired and modernised by us for reuse. In the design of the exhibition rooms, upcycling of showcases and lighting is just as important to us as low-energy and low-waste management, as is the use of regional products in the ice cream parlour. For PfalzCard holders, a visit to the Toy Museum is free of charge.
