This the mother of all Christmas stores. Once a family business in 1964, not only has this company grown it has established this over the top store in Rothenburg. It claims to be the largest and most favorite provider of traditional German Christmas products. There are hundreds of nutcrackers, pyramids and incense smokers all from German manufacturers. Some have candles... More

This was a marvellous shop for purchasing souvenirs or wonderful Christmas items. It is a very expensive store to purchase items. Also we weren't allowed to take photos which can be a drawback for a world that relies so much on media information. I don't think taking pictures is detrimental to people buying a product I think that it would... More

Beautiful shop. Gorgeous displays and prices were not too expensive. But, if they see a camera they will descend on you and warn you not to take pictures - even if you are purchasing items. Seems very odd as sharing photos would only make others want to visit. Other shops in town had no problems with taking a photo.

As you enter it feels like Christmas. There are so many things to buy from Christmas decorations to table decor for Christmas.

Everything is beautiful and most everything is fragile. So if travelling with kids in the age when everything needs to be touched, you might want to keep your visit short, so you're not torturing your child with unfilled temptations.

An absolutely beautiful store where I ended up spending almost €200…problem however is they messed up my address and now I have to hunt for my package myself somewhere here in Australia…I'm so disappointed as I was assured they'd done this so many times before. My advice, ship it yourself to avoid disappointment.

This is part of a chain of stores that has an amazing amazing collection of Christmas items. There are items here that you will likely not see anywhere else, as well as more common items. However what is definitely worth the trip, are the displays. This store is beautifully done, and worth 15 minutes to walk around fast, or a... More
