A specialty shop offering everything for the holiday. Located on the Main Street. The store carries everything you can again for the holiday. If you love the holiday, this is the place to visit. After visit enjoy a lunch outdoors watching the world go by.

A wonderland of Christmas decorations, trees, historic Christmas displays and wonderful collectables. Very helpful staff dressed in traditional costumes and we thoroughly enjoyed the time in one of the two shops and museums.

If you want to buy Xmas decorations this is the place to do it. There are plenty of staff to help you with your purchases or enquiries. The decorations are not cheap but they are exquisite. What looks like a small shop from the front just keeps going back once you're inside.

Excellent christmas decorations inside the store, just accept the fact that no pictures or video recording is allowed inside the place. Otherwise it is a good place to buy Christmas stuff.

Dragging my protesting husband into this shop was not easy - I do seem to have an inordinate number of Christmas decorations, but you never know what you might find. The shop goes on and on in little rooms along roped off corridors so you get a chance to see everything. My favourite area with the pyramids - some several... More

I dutifully followed my wife in the visit to this very nice Christmas store. I checked off my box in less than 2 minutes. Nice but Rothenburg is so wonderful why would you spend time here.

The Christmas Store is definitely something you want to see while you are in Rothenburg. It is decorated so beautifully with hand-made and gorgeous Christmas ornaments. You can also visit the museum if you would like, but for us we felt like the store was sufficient and it was free. It goes on forever!!! They have a nice flow from... More

I loved this shop, even in 35 degrees in July. It did feel kind of weird buying Christmas ornaments but I'll appreciate them in December! So much choice, you can't fail to find something to take home to remind you of this beautiful town. They package your items very well too. Best of all, it's air conditioned! Nice photo ops... More
