Munich's first puppet theater was founded in 1858 by Josef Leonhard Schmid and the Count of Pocci. Architect Theodor Fischer was commissioned to build a new theater in 1900, and the result was the first ever theater dedicated to puppets. It is just as impressive today as it was a hundred years ago, and continues to draw in punters young and old who come to laugh at Kasperl (the German equivalent of Punch and Judy) and listen to fairy tales from around the world.
