Sesamstrasse

More than four generations of children have grown up with Sesamstrasse, our local version of Sesame Street that has aired in Germany since 1973. Created for 3- to 6-year-olds, Sesamstrasse  encourages creative play, asking questions, and using active imaginations. The Muppets of Sesamstrasse include familiar faces Cookie Monster, Elmo, Grover, and Bert and Ernie as well as local German characters Wolle, Pferd, Finchen, and Samson. These furry friends help kids tackle issues like socio-emotional development, music and art appreciation, and diversity—especially relevant for the diverse population of modern Germany.
