Is it the winding alleys in the old town, the half-timbered houses or the defiant castles and palaces that make Coburg so special?

A glimpse into the city's varied past can be experienced everywhere, between Renaissance buildings and neo-Gothic rows of houses. In the city center, there are still around 1,100 buildings, ensembles and historic gardens that are protected as individual or ensemble monuments.

Teddy bears stuffed with wood wool belong to the rarity treasure of the teddy bear world and are hardly offered on the market today, in the age of short-lived mass-produced goods. What used to be part of the daily craft of the teddy bear maker has become a valuable and rare treasure. Worldwide, there are only a handful of experts who still master the traditional art of wood-wool stuffing. Years of training, muscular strength and an artistic sense of form are required to perform the very time-consuming process of wood wool darning.

For over 100 years, we have been cultivating the art of stuffing teddy bears with wood wool in our house. This makes our teddy bears incomparable and unique creatures with value preserving character.
