The year after the opening is nowhere more popular: the dachshund museum in Germany WikiPet
The symbol of the Olympic Games, which took place in Munich in 1972, was Waldi - a wonderful dog of the Dachshund breed. It was a blue-green-yellow toy, similar to a real (only multi-colored) representative of the breed.
Waldi symbolized qualities without which it is impossible to imagine the Olympic champion - including perseverance and endurance. Valdi and all the other dachshunds from around the world recall and honor a unique museum located in the German city of Passau in Bavaria, which opened a year ago.
This museum is the idea of two former florists, Joseph and Oliver. This amount means that it is the largest collection of things in the world in honor of dachshunds.
In the museum you can look at stamps, plates, toys, dolls, salt shakers, figurines, art prints, figurines, beer mugs and the famous sketch of a dachshund made by Picasso (true, non-original).
And in the museum you can always find real dachshunds, Seppi and Moni. They are the favorites of Joseph and Oliver and accompany them everywhere. But the entrance to the museum is open not only to them - the owners are happy with any four-legged visitors.
Dachshunds are a very popular breed in Germany, but in Bavaria it is even more popular than the national average. This breed is often used as a symbol of Germany. And this is logical, because these dogs were bred here to hunt predators such as foxes and badgers. The last emperor of Germany, Kaiser Wilhelm II, was even buried with his little hunting companion.
