This is a truly amazing store, or rather stores as there are two main stores oppposite each other in the main street and another ten around the old city! As a person who is totally crazy about Christmas these stores were like heaven on earth to me. The selection is mind boggling and the quality of their decorations, figurines and... More

As typical Americans, we are familiar with several major Christmas decoration outlets, not to mention over the top malls in the NYC metro area. But this Christmas shop is in a different league: 5-10 small interconnected rooms, just packed with decorations of every sort, for every budget, most hand made. The rooms are decorated elaborately with lit trees and displays.... More

I'm what you may call a Christmas NUT! I love Christmas and the only thing I require of ANY vacation I take is a beautiful Christmas ornament. When I visited Rothenburg, not only is the city just beautiful, but this store was what made it my favorite store. It brought Christmas to June! When I walked in, I was blown... More

The shop is huge and a pleasure to stroll through. Just being in there brings a smile to your face. Plenty of surprises and delights as you gaze at some beautiful displays and decorations. Plenty for the shopper either for self or as gifts. Don't miss it whether male or female of any age.

It's like visiting Disneyland but a lot smaller. I could've spent all day in the store. Wonderful ornaments, more than I could imagine. Even my brother looked in awe. Some ornaments were pricey but I found several within my budget. Definitely worth a visit

I was expecting beautiful things...and there were but too much of the "Christmas Palace" and Dollar Stores you find in the USA made of course in China. My Mom is a Nativity Set collector and I was looking something made in Germany for her without breaking the bank. I found it in a little store 3 or 4 down from... More

If you're going to get snared in a tourist trap, this is the place. An unbelievable selection and excellent service. Predetermine how much you're willing to spend in advance!

Visiting Kathe Wohlfahrt's Christmas shop was part of our agenda when we visited Rothenburg last month. We had an enjoyable time browsing at the wide variety of magnificent holiday decors and bought some souvenir items and decors from the store. Although we did not enter the Christmas museum, we spent more time inside the store than the other historical parts... More
