Fodor's Review

A former church was innovatively converted to house this fascinating documentation of packaging and package design of brand-name products. Representing the years 1800 to the present, historic logos and slogans are a trip down memory lane. The entrance is in a courtyard reached via an alley.

Deutsches Verpackungs-Museum Review

We slipped into the Museum out of curiousity, and spent about an hour perusing. It was enjoyable enough, we had the place to ourselves, and even brought our dog in with us. It is clean, nice bathrooms, and classy displays of old packaging for familiar german and french brands, everything from chocolates to shaving cream. Nice break from a day of shopping.
