No matter when you go there, it feels like X-Mas! Be ready to spend money there on new year decorations! The place brings you back to childhood.

Everything is so beautiful, it is like a fairytale. We bought a lot of Christmas tree decorations. Can't wait to decorate the tree end of 2017. My favourite thing was the embroided tabel cloths in the back of the store. It is so stunning. Loved the trip to Rothenburg. A definite bucket list activity! So worth it.

There is absolutely everything in here to do with decorating for Christmas! All set out in a lovely manner, themed by area. I did feel a little like I was in a museum, and also that I might knock something expensive over as I walked around. There are lots of assistants around, I think to keep a close eye on... More

If you love Christmas you will love this shop. Beautiful decorations and things to buy. It is worth the visit even if you don't buy anything. They have a Christmas Museum that is above the store that is very interesting. Prices maybe a little bit on the high side but the quality is great.

Germans make the best Christmas Decorations .The main shop is so big it is easy to get lost. There are so many types of decorations made of wood, glass , straw , lace and metal . There are at least another 4 shops. All the products are German made.

There is a variety of Christmas ornaments, pyramids, advent calenders and lots more. Only need to do it once but I would recommend it. It is the original.
