This is one of the most beautiful Christmas shops I have ever seen! From the outside it looks small, but the inside is just magical. You will walk through various floor of all kinds of Christmas decorations. Ranging from glass, wood, felt and straw! A must see!

I think my husband and I were expecting to learn more in this museum but it was mostly just showing different types of ornaments, santas, etc. I personally would give it a five just to look at all the gorgeous old ornaments; However, I adore anything Christmas. But my 10 year old daughter and husband gave it a "3" because... More

This place is massive inside, if just keeps going on and on. There are millions of decorations to choose from, we bought a few to take back home. If you have at least an hour to spare, visit, you will enjoy it.

The moment you step into this shop you are in a Chrismas spirit. There are so many to see that you cant comprehent it all. The big German tree was the ultimate. To see how every little creature was.made by hand is also a winner. Its so good to know that not everything was made in China and you understand... More

The history behind Christmas traditions was interesting but it seemed like the exhibit should not have costed €5 a person if anything. Everything seemed to belong to one person. The museum was OK but not a must see.

If you want to get into the Christmas spirit (no matter what time of the year it is) before you go into one of the many shops selling Christmas articles, you need to stop in here.
