  • Department store Christmas very well decorated including a lively village. A lot of decorating options ranging from small tree to the pyramid Christmas decorations wooden. One of the well-known attractions of Rothenburg.

  • There are Käthes shops in Germany on many Christmas markets. Since they fit in time as well. The offer is but small compared to the shop in Rothenburg. So you want to enjoy the Christmas kitsch in all splendour, you must come here. I knew only from the United States stores throughout the year selling Christmas decorations. So, then, the audience in the business is very international. The product range is equivalent to international tourists, which expands to "Do Europe" in 5 days. The selection of cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest is huge. There is probably also a miniature of Neuschwanstein Castle. If the Japanese in Hohenschwangau has failed one to buy, he can do this. Great thing the business. Germany shows the international travellers so! Worth seeing and harmless offputting at the same time.

  • Beautiful Christmas items for sure ! High priced but good quality ornaments. The staff was not very helpful or friendly they were a bit rude

  • Nice place espectially on Christmas
  • Has any Christmas decoration you would want. Highly recommended that you don't bring your kids because I could only imagine a bull in a china shop. Museum is in here too (4 euro extra entrance). And it's so packed there's a line outside the store just to enter (Saturday in December).
  • What a amazing all year round Christmas shop!
  • THIS IS THE BEST STORE IN THE WORLD! REASON: THIS IS THE WORLD'S LARGEST CHRISTMAS STORE! While Rothenburg has history wafting through it, this is a terrific modern draw for the city. Who doesn't love Christmas??
  • It is, literally, Christmas.
