The world’s first and unique dachshund museum Kleine Residenz (“Small Residence”) is located right across the New Bishop’s Residence. The dachshund – a philosophy – is shown in an exhibition that contains the world’s largest collection of a total of more than 4,500 exhibits.
No other dog seems to be as world-famous as the dachshund. The 100th anniversary of the Free State of Bavaria, the dachshund in nobility or the dachshund in hunting as well as “Waldi”, the dachshund of the 1972 Olympic Games, are focal points in the museum.
The museum is located in Residence Square, which is no doubt the most beautiful square in the city of Passau. The collection was compiled by the two master florists Seppi Küblbeck and Oliver Storz over the last 25 years and is now shown to the public for the first time. A large number of exhibits are lovingly presented in showcases, with a wink of an eye and a great passion for the dachshund, which represents Bavaria like nobody else.

“That the dog is the dearest to me, you say,
O man, is sin?
The dog stayed true to me in the storm
Man already went to the wind!“
