Delve into the Christmas spirit German-style at Kathe Wohlfahrt, selling handmade traditional gifts and collectibles. The family-run company specializes in all things related to the holiday, but its flagship store in Rothenburg also stocks small souvenirs like hand-painted music boxes, glass figurines, and miniature cuckoo clocks. Visit the shop to see its Christmas museum, displaying traditional holiday items that include scented candles, nativity scenes, and handcrafted decorative objects. The permanent exhibit explains the development of the German Christmas tradition and guides visitors through the evolution of decorative holiday items from simple gingerbread cookies to mouth-blown glass ornaments.

  • An amazing shop, where all the year you can breathe the Christmas atmosphere. There are unique decorations, hand-carved and expertly painted, but also precious fabrics and refined decorations. Not to be missed.

  • A small journey into another world full of artisanal and Christmas art, which makes you want to buy and, above all, give. In addition to numerous Käthe Wohlfahrt shops, Rothenburg captivates with a wonderful atmosphere. Worth a trip at any time!
