  • Definitely worth to get there, I was with the kids in January, when the street was snow! Accordingly, the atmosphere is generally fantastic. Inside it is very pretty and festive, regarding exhibits tell the following: many different beautiful ornaments and toys that are really fun to watch, but most pleasantly surprised that I saw Christmas toys from my childhood. In the Soviet Union, when good toys were scarce, very valued and were very light and very rare beautiful German toys of the GDR, so we had a lot of toys and a few of those I saw in the Museum immediately remembered))). Also in the Museum you can buy a lot of toys, toys are beautiful, the average price in the region of 20 euros.

  • Go to city of Rothenburg ob the Taube and not enter (you don't have to buy, I doubt out of there without a little something!!) is like not being in the city. A glimpse of products, a dream d Christmas decorations! Must visit and of course, the picture (from the outside, inside it is forbidden to photograph)
