“Christmas every day of the year!”

German Christmas Museum (Deutsches Weihnachtsmuseum)
Ranked #12 of 64 things to do in Rothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed June 1, 2014

A great place to visit - the little lights in the ceiling give the impression of stars in the night sky. So many more elaborate ideas for Christmas decorations that we have at home. Love the wooden figures, particularly the Rauchenmanner (smoking men) and the little Christmas scenes rotating by fan & candle-power. Not to be missed.

I thought this museum was very boring. My favorite part of the museum was the beginning, when they had several signs and other information about the origin of Christmas (not the baby Jesus story). I also enjoyed looking at the hundreds of handmade ornaments, but not as intently as others were. I think my grandparents would have enjoyed this museum more than me. The store attached to the museum is amazing. It's very pretty and has tons of really cool ornaments for purchase. They also have an awesome clearance section. I was able to get 6 ornaments for under 15 euros. Discount with Rick Steves' Germany 2014 book.

An interesting look into some of the different Christmas traditions and how they evolved. We visited during Christmas so it was maybe more significant as a result. I was expecting a little more though.
