There’s a dachshund museum in Germany

Two former florists in Germany turned their love for dachshunds into a museum dedicated to the breed.

Josef Küblbeck and Oliver Storz opened the museum this month in the Bavarian city of Passau to celebrate Germany’s love for the sausage dog, the BBC reported. The dachshund is a symbol of Bavaria.

The Dackelmuseum contains the florists’ collection of items curated over 25 years, the BBC reported, and is the world’s biggest collection of dachshund-themed objects.

“The world needs a sausage dog museum,” Küblbeck told the BBC. “No other dog in the world enjoys the same kind of recognition or popularity as the symbol of Bavaria, the sausage dog.”
