We enjoyed our visit, as the museum explains the evolution of the celebration of Christmas, especially of the Christmas tree and its ornaments. It has several trees decorated with beautiful handmade decorations dating back 100 years or more.

If you love Xmas you will enjoy this place. You can buy Christmas decorations all year long
If you love Christmas this is the perfect place to visit, even if you just shop. It has a great museum on the history of Christmas celebrations and the town just feels a bit like Christmas all year round, doesn't it? :)
Overload of Christmas items. Very pretty even to just browse. Prices are high, but lots of multi lingual staff on hand who are eager to help. Gets flooded with tour boat bus loads.
A all-year-around Christmas shop! All kinds of Christmas decorations. There is also a Christmas museum.
