Delve into the Christmas spirit German-style at Kathe Wohlfahrt, selling handmade traditional gifts and collectibles. The family-run company specializes in all things related to the holiday, but its flagship store in Rothenburg also stocks small souvenirs like hand-painted music boxes, glass figurines, and miniature cuckoo clocks. Visit the shop to see its Christmas museum, displaying traditional holiday items that include scented candles, nativity scenes, and handcrafted decorative objects. The permanent exhibit explains the development of the German Christmas tradition and guides visitors through the evolution of decorative holiday items from simple gingerbread cookies to mouth-blown glass ornaments.

  • Beautiful shop!!! Characteristic not only for Christmas lovers. The veyrina of the puppets that move is wonderful. It deserves a jump in any season of the year.

  • As soon as you enter you are surprised to see a large window with plush moving between typical cottages (you can not photograph, sorry, I noticed me later). Then you enter into a fantastic world, Christmas decorations of all kinds (which can more or less please), a vast amount of baubles for the tree (various sizes and many colors), an infinity of objects large and small, very large store with various orders ready to Help. I bought 8 simple balls for the Christmas tree (a little expensive, one guy cost 8.95 euros each) and then a square with inside the miniature representation of a bakery, all the items are in fine porcelain. Despite the heat outside (local air-conditioned, apparently the only one in Rothenburg) it was pleasant, fun to think about Christmas already.
