We will be happy to guide you through our museum. Please arrange an individual appointment with us.
A photo puzzle rally for families with children up to 14 years leads through the old town of Freinsheim. The rally is deliberately designed "analog" on paper, so that the mobile phone gets a break. The guests receive the solution sheets directly from us in the i-points. The reward is with us. To the game plan
The museum does not have its own parking spaces. Free parking is available for cars directly in the town centre (limited number). There are also parking spaces for cars and buses outside the town walls. Freinsheim is traffic-calmed on Sundays! After a short walk through the picturesque Freinsheim you will reach our museum.
Address: SPIELZEUGHAUS Museum & Café Historisches Spielzeugmuseum Freinsheim An der Bach 9 67251 Freinsheim - Germany.

From Cologne: At the Frankenthal junction, change from the A61 to the A6 towards Saarbrücken. Take the exit Grünstadt/Dt. Weinstraße, direction Bad Dürkheim. You will now drive around Kirchheim on the new B271. Immediately afterwards you will be greeted by the Golfgarten Dt. Weinstraße and you will find yourself in the Freinsheim holiday region.
At the Viernheim junction, change from the A67 to the A6 towards Saarbrücken, then see above.

At the (unnamed) Hockenheim junction, change from the A6 to the A61 towards Ludwigshafen/Mainz. At the Ludwigshafen junction, change to the A650 towards Bad Dürkheim. Follow the expansion road and either turn off after the Maxdorf exit in the direction of Erpolzheim or shortly before Bad Dürkheim in the direction of Grünstadt. This will take you via Kallstadt to the Freinsheim holiday region.
At the Walldorf junction, change from the A5 to the A6 in the direction of Mannheim/Koblenz and from the Hockenheim junction, see above.
Arriving by bus:
The through roads of our wine villages are very narrow in some places. The connection between Dackenheim and Freinsheim is obstructed by a bridge with a clearance height of 3.70 m. The bridge is very narrow. Alternatively, you can drive via Herxheim am Berg to Freinsheim. Freinsheimer Straße in Kallstadt in the direction of the town centre is closed to buses.
The entrances to Freinsheim and Erpolzheim, both from Kallstadt/Bad Dürkheim, are also obstructed by narrow bridges with clearance heights of 3.80 m and 3.50 m respectively. Alternatively, you can approach Weisenheim am Sand, Erpolzheim and Freinsheim either from the south via the A650 or from the east via a country road from Frankenthal via Lambsheim.
We kindly ask you to let your guests get off the buses at the destinations and to park the buses at the designated parking lots (Kallstadt: exit of Freinsheimer Straße; Freinsheim: Weisenheimer Straße/Fa. Neu's or Reiboldstraße; Herxheim: Weisenheimer Straße/village square; Weisenheim am Sand: train station; Weisenheim am Berg: sports field/regional school)
Arrival by train:
The communities Freinsheim, Erpolzheim, Herxheim am Berg and Weisenheim am Sand have direct train connections. The towns are connected to Neustadt/Weinstraße, Grünstadt and Frankenthal by local traffic. Long-distance travellers find their connection to the holiday region of Freinsheim via Mannheim main station. The trains run very regularly thanks to the Rhineland-Palatinate timetable. Please note that the train stations of the individual villages are not located in the centre of the village. Ask your landlord whether a transfer can be organised.
The holiday region Freinsheim has worked out various hiking suggestions that connect our villages with each other or with the forest or also with Bad Dürkheim. Since the tours are all designed as circular routes, you can start in all places along the route.
