4,500 Dachshund-Related Items at New German Museum

In the German town of Passau, former florists Josef Küblbeck and Oliver Storz have opened a museum dedicated to the delightful daschund, aka the wiener dog or sausage dog. Known as Dackelmuseum, or Dachshund Museum, the destination features 4,500 sausage dog-related items. According to D. Caroline Coile’s assessment in “The Dachshund Handbook,” this particular breed originated in Germany to assist in badger hunts. They were bred to wriggle into holes in the soil. Now, they’re certainly an internet favorite and even have their own fiesta. Learn more about the museum at Smithsonian Magazine.
