Most comprehensive Christmas Shop ever

Worthwhile to merely wander though the many, many Christmas products conveniently and cleverly displayed in theme areas in the store. Absolutely no pressure to purchase.

This place certainly put me in the mood for Christmas and made me feel like a kid again. It was like visiting the North pole. This place just goes on and on and on with whatever you can think of in the Christmas theme. You name a color of an ornament ball and they have it. There are two floors... More

Kathe Wohlfahrt's Christmas store is a Christmas junkie's paradise. Very large and beautiful. We spent several hours and several hundred dollars inside. The interesting thing is that most of their items are not available anywhere else. Great Hotel right next door (Eisenhut Hotel).

This place is amazing. If you can't find a Christmas related item here, you are not going to find it. Fun place to visit; makes you feel like a kid again. Floors and floors of items, all tasteful.

A must see store in a must see town. Located in the middle of this walled Medieval City. Great shopping and this store is one of the many Christmas shops. Lots of nut crackers and everything else for the holidays. Bring or buy a bag to take home your wares.

Hang on to your children in here, you really don't want to be paying for any breakages! A proper Christmas extravaganza, it's a magical shop. We finally found some decorations that suited our budget, so they are there but it takes some looking.

An absolute wonderland. I have never written a review of a shop but this was so much more than that. It was a stunning experience wandering through aisles of beautifully made Christmas decorations under a roof of holly and twinkling stars. Each centrepiece Christmas tree was magnificent. My husband enjoyed it too. There is no pressure to buy but if... More

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
