  • Located right off the main square in Rothenburg, this store is the largest Christmas outlet I've ever encountered! There are two stores just across the street from each other and the larger one also contains the Christmas museum - for which there is a nominal fee. The main store is so large one can easily get lost; however there are uniformed employees who guide us through. Pictures are not allowed inside the store. The sheer amount of Christmas merchandise is overwhelming! There are individual themed rooms with more options than the mind can take in. It's definitely magical. My wife was in heaven! The store will ship any merchandise purchased to anywhere. Plan on spending some serious time here!
  • Another momentous day visiting the Medieval Bavarian town of Rothenburg, noted for its Christmas Creations and Celebrations. We were treated tp great local food, had exciting time chatting with a local resident, Wilhelm from Stuttgart. One day is not enough for this place! Someone is excited for the Christmas Museum! And this store, Kathe Wohlfahrt, was outstanding. We bought many items to take back with us to America, including Christmas Gifts for many friends and family. Wide selection at competitive prices. And I got my authentic limited-edition German Beer Stein which is now sitting on my office bookshelf.
