  • The only reason I gave 4 stars is because we were not allowed to visit the museum inside the store, as we did not have our Schnelltest, which is rather ridiculous as we were crowded in the store...

  • Beautiful!! This Christmas market was stunning!! It has everything you can think of, mainly hand made! The wood work was so beautiful, metal work too. All the hand painted glass, and wood ornaments. Everything in this place was out of this world and magical. Even if you are not into Christmas markets and not planning to buy anything you still have to check it out. It's a unique place with a wonderful vibe.
  • Honestly, with younger kids, the gift shop was the highlight of the experience. They had so many things that I didn’t even know I wanted. Definitely a great place for gifts or unique and lively Christmas decor
