This is THE place for all your Christmas ornaments, etc...There are Kathe Wohlfart stores throughout Germany but this is a biggie. Well Worth the visit, as is the Christmas museum.

This is one of those shops that is utterly unambiguous about what it sells. Well worth a wander. Avoid the Christmas museum though - €4 of mediocre!

I just did the same. Go to Zur Höll for sinner Saturday night and then there is plenty of shopping open on Sunday at 10am. We went to the crime museum and then shopping and lunch. Was a great Sunday.
