Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
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. Make Kathe Wohlfahrt a centerpiece of your Rothenburg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Rothenburg itinerary maker.

  • This is the oldest and largest of the Kathe Wohlfahrt stores. This was my third visit to wonderful Rothenburg and I just had to go there again to see the vast range of goods for sale.  more »
  • Actually there are two main stores, plus various subsidiaries, facing each other, one is the source, the other the second born to expand the premises. It's worth a visit to both, even if the products are the same. Here is always Christmas, you return children and have fun just watching.

  • I could buy everything from there. In there are little figures that are common in Austria, Germany etc. In the figure is a hole and you put smoking tablet in the figure. Then smoke comes out from that...  more »

  • Fine wooden figurines super processed. You never know what you will find, so much choice. You could just buy everything. It's great.

  • Sehr gute, filigrane Holzfiguren zu finden.
  • 每次經過這家店不跟那隻胡桃鉗國王拍照好像都很對不起自己一樣

Where to stay in Rothenburg

Consider lodging in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast located in the city's Old Town. Lodging outside the walls may save a few dollars, however. Many lodging options are close enough to offer access to city sites on foot.
