Käthe Wohlfahrt

Details

Käthe Wohlfahrt is a family owned business founded in 1964 by Wilhelm and Käthe Wohlfahrt. Everything began with a Christmas music box from the Erzgebirge region which was a gift from friends. The business idea grew out of a love for a traditional Christmas, together with an enthusiasm for preserving customs and the associated craftsmanship.

Every year Christmas touches hearts and minds in a special way. It’s the time when an atmosphere of warmth and comfort blankets homes everywhere - a time of reflection, love, anticipation and discovery.

Käthe Wohlfahrt boasts an extensive range of products are candles, Christmas tree decorations, nativity scenes and nutcrackers. All products are made from hand and with only limited numbers available, stock sells out very quickly.
The shop is open all year long and boasts the world's largest selection of traditional German Christmas ornaments.
