Augsburger Puppenkiste

The Augsburger Puppenkiste (which literally translates as "Augsburg's puppet chest") is a famous German marionette theater.

Founded in post-war West Germany in 1948 by Rose and Walter Oehmichen, the family-owned company became renowned for staging fairy tales and children's stories and producing television in the early 1950s. Its most popular productions include "Urmel," as well as "Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver," based on a novel by Michael Ende.
