“Christmas explodes all around you while you are here”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Words can hardly describe the place. If you are looking for something having to do with Christmas, it is here. There must be hundreds of thousands of ornaments and decorations. The place is huge. I don't know how you could not walk through without a smile on your face. The German Christmas Museum is also located within the shop, but was closed when we went there, so we could not go in.

“Christmas all year”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

31 degrees in the summer and you enter Xmas world as soon as you step into the shop of "Käthe Wohlfahrt".
Amazing the choice of decoration. Expensive, but beautiful.

“Christmas Store”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

One of the prettiest Christmas stores I've ever seen. It was beautiful to walk through to look and to shop. They had a lot of German ornaments to choose from. They have two shops in town.

“Big Bucks Spent Here”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

Be prepared for the Christmas store to end all Christmas stores!!! Unfortunately, the prices are very high -- but so is Europe in general. They will ship to the US and let you charge your purchases in US dollars.
