Beautiful handmade Xmas ornaments
Dec 2019
Käthe Wohlfahrt is based out of Rothenburg and is a famous maker of handmade Christmas tree ornaments and other holiday items. They have shops throughout Germany including one in Nuremberg along Königsstraße, which we visited recently during our stay in the city. Opening hours are 10am to 7pm daily.

This is a great shop to see excellent quality tree ornament and other Christmas items which you can purchased year round. Their window displays are quite inviting. Once you enter, you find walls lined with beautiful ornaments and tables full of impressive Nutcracker figures, traditional German Christmas pyramids even a handful of traditional cuckoo clocks on the walls, all of which are really nice to see even if you don't plan on making purchases.

During our visit to the Nuremburg Käthe Wohlfahrt shops earlier this month, we ended up purchasing four new tree ornaments which now sit beautifully in our trees back home. They really stand out next to ornaments of lower quality. The craftsmanship is really there with the Käthe Wohlfahrt ornaments.

Will happily revisit Käthe Wohlfahrt shops when we encounter them during visits to European cities in the future.

Christmas decorations
Oct 2019
the shop was like any Christmas store here in the States. I was hoping to find something original, but it was not so. The embroidered table pieces were all machine made and not very original. I'm not saying that many of the decorations weren't nice, but I could buy them here.

Avoid, extremely rude employees!!!

Avoid!!! Unhelpful and extremely rude cashiers in this store. Initially refused to accept my credit card, apparently because it lacked a picture ID, and demanded to see my passport (which I naturally do not carry around with me). This is completely unheard of and has never been a problem before, anywhere! Besides, no credit cards nowadays have picture ID's. Finally agreed to accept the credit card after seeing my drivers licence. I needed to buy a souvenir for a relative, otherwise I would never leave any money at this store...

Wonderful craftsmanship of Bavarian Holiday Specialties
Dec 2017 • Solo
Lovely shop right off the main square in Nuremberg. Helpful multi-lingual staff ready to answer questions and wrap up any purchases. They have custom designed nutcrackers, smokers, and ornaments. Most items are Christmas oriented but other holidays are also represented in smaller selections.

I particularly liked knowing that most of the items are exclusive and that they sell several location-specific items. Their pricing is a little higher but fair for the quality. For instance, I was able to purchase a Nuremberg specific glass ornament that was a step above the quality and design work those found in the standard tourist shop. This store is part of a chain, but they produce almost everything in their private workshop outside Rothenberg.

If you are in the market for a fine remembrance of your trip to Bavaria this shop is worth a stop.

Beautiful Christmas decor. Quality items with something for everyone.

This shop was amazing! So many beautiful ornaments, nutcrackers, glockenspiels, and so much more. We found some ornaments for our daughters. The clerks took the time to really package our delicate items well. They all made it home safely. This shop is not cheap, but you get what you pay for, so we'll worth it!

Kathe Wohlfahrt
Dec 2017 • Couples
Wonderful shop centrally located, and open all year long. Was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season. Right close to the Market, you can browse for some high end items not sold in the stalls. Nice shop.

Wonderful Christmas Market Shop
Dec 2017 • Couples
On our Christmas Markets river boat cruise, we stopped at Kathe Wohlfahrt's shop in Nuremberg. She offers a huge assortment of ornament which are displayed in a beautiful way. We are delighted with the two ornaments we purchased and wait get them home and displayed. Of all the shops and stalls at the Nuremberg Christmas Market we thought this one was the best.

Always worth a visit
Oct 2017 • Couples
Kathe Wohlfahrt has come a long way through the years, with branches in most major German cities. Obviously the one in Rothenburg ob der Tauber is the granddaddy, but the others are also nice. We visited the one in Nuremberg this time, and my wife found several very nice items for the family. The clerk was very helpful and knowledgeable; quickly found the correct boxes for the items we purchased. Always love the giant nutcracker out front.
