Established in 1964 this must be the largest and most famous provider of German Christmas products. On the outside it looks fairly small but just like the Dr. Who police box the inside just expands and expands to acres of wonderful Christmas goodies. Simply stunning...More

I just did the same. Go to Zur Höll for sinner Saturday night and then there is plenty of shopping open on Sunday at 10am. We went to the crime museum and then shopping and lunch. Was a great Sunday.
