This was my favorite Christmas Market of the ones we visited. We went to Nuremburg, Wurzburg, and Bamberg, It had the quaint feel that I was looking for in a market. And the items were high quality pieces.

we had a cosy walk through the museum and it was so much fun. They have re -created christmas trees from the first to the present style. That was very much fun for all of us - especially our kids (11 and 15)

Unique, fantastic, exquisite! Good for all kids from 1 to 101 years of age. Every piece is a work of art.

A comprehensive museum with every detail about this holiday you can imagine. It's origin, traditions, history and so on. The exhibition is breathtaking.

My 20 something daughter and I actually enjoyed learning about Christmas and how the tree came about. The development of the ornaments over time was interesting. For 4 euros, not a bad price. I wouldn't bring small children in, they wouldn't enjoy it, but I did see school age children there. Also, it is now the day after Christmas and... More

The shop you go through to get to the museum is amazing, but the museum itself pales in comparison. If you love old Christmas decorations go and have a look, otherwise just enjoy the shop. Don't think kids would enjoy it, it's more for the adults.

We entered this museum by going through the Kathy Wolfhart store. No pictures allowed and be careful when going in with kids that they keep their hands to themselves. Takes about 1/2 hour to go through. Nice experience.

Visiting a Christmas museum with huge Seasonal crowds in Dec. What could possibly go wrong? No time to look and read and learn. A miserable experience. And with entrance thru Kathe Wohlfarts....don't talk to me about how American commercialization has ruined Christmas.
