I think the Christmas Shop is a year round attraction but the Christmas Museum upstairs is well worth a visit. This museum gives a great insight into the bygone history of how Christmas was celebrated. I enjoyed my experience and it brought back some great...More

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

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.
