We visited this museum as a part of a visit to Kathe Wolfharts store. It was a very good display of Christmas decorations throughout time. Well worth a visit.

I wish I had not wasted time doing this as it was not very interesting, it would have been enough to just walk around the shop and enjoy the atmosphere. Wish I had listened to the reviews and not wasted my time

beautiful things for sale, but nothing special and cheaper at home, but you came to Germany to do what? unless you are into waiting in long lines and struggling through thick crowds I would avoid the whole romantic road

This was one of the first places to visit I was advised when planning the trip via Rothenburg. A must visit for young and old. You will get into the Christmas spirit very soon after entering the shop.

Wow the biggest Christmas shop i have seen anywhere. No wonder it has a famous reputation for range and quality. They have everything that you could imagine for a Continental Christmas. Beware though they are quite expensive!

We paid the €4 as it was summertime and the city was busy. The museum was quiet though and we enjoyed seeing all the old decorations. It was enjoyable.
