Käthe Wohlfahrt shop in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is synonymous with the romance of the Middle Ages – just take a look around you when you're strolling through the town. And what better home for the Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas shop than in this romantic town where every day feels like Christmas?

Christmas all year round
Käthe Wohlfahrt is famous around the world for her Christmas village. It sells Christmas decorations of all kinds, from traditional German to more modern creations. Every taste and budget is catered for, but rest assured that it's all wonderfully designed. It also houses a Christmas museum and puts on special exhibits during the festive period.

Places of interest

Rothenburg Spitaltor Gate, copyright Rothenburg Tourismus Service
The town walls with their battlements and mighty bastions form a protective circle around the precious relics of bygone ages. The Spitalbastei at the southern gate is particularly impressive. Its towers are not the only outstanding feature of St. James's Church; the interior is equally impressive, with three altars by Tilman Riemenschneider, the renowned woodcarver.
