    Best jewelry, clock and watch shop in Rothenburg

    I found this awesome jewelry shop at the top of the hill from the market place on the left hand corner that we turned into to go to the beer garden.

    I bought a Swarovski necklass and crystal frog and also a fob watch for Howies dad. I found this place to be quite cheap so I recommend you have a look as well.

    KATHE WOHLFAHRT: XMAS SHOPPING

    by balhannah Written Dec 13, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kathe Wohlfahrt, and I had previously been into one of her Xmas shops. The item's for sale are by no means cheap, but they are beautiful and look to be of very good quality.

    The shop sells everything you can think of to do with xmas! I loved having a browse through here, only problem, in this shop there were NO PHOTO'S ALLOWED!
    I had already taken one before I saw the sign.

    If you want, you can buy online by going to the website below.

    Käthe Wohlfahrt's Christmas shop: Where it's Christmas every day of the year!

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Oct 17, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    First Christmas tree ornament we bought together

    Welcome to Käthe Wohlfahrt's Christmas shop - where it's Christmas every day of the year. Actually, unless you're a real Christmas junkie (guilty as charged!), it has a slightly sinister tone to it, like Narnia under the White Witch, where it was always winter, but never got around to being Christmas ... but I digress ...

    Although it sounds like kiddy heaven, it's quite a grown up shop, which specialises in ever conceivable manner of Christmas decoration. However, this is no WalMart plastic extravaganza: Käthe's merchanise is upmarket, high quality stuff, with a price tag to match!

    As you might expect, the stars of the show are the traditional handmade wooden decorations - the crib sets in particular are breathtakingly ornate and mindblowingly expensive, but the logic here is that you're buying an heirloom that will be handed down over generations. If you do decide to invest, spare a thought for your luggage allowance, as these things are heavy: but of course for Käthe's well trained staff, arranging international shipment is an everyday occurence!

    This flagship store in Rothenberg - whose slightly kitsch atmosphere has to make it the perfect location for a Christmas shop - has been so successful that there are now a chain of Käthe Wohlfahrts.

    Even if you only buy the smallest bauble, it will be a wonderful souvenir of your time here. In our case, we bought the star below, which has particuar significance for us, as this was the first Christmas decoration that we ever bought together, on the trip that we got engaged.

    Käthe Wohlfahrt: weird or wonderful?

    by iaint Written Sep 26, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is weird. I can’t describe it any other way.

    It’s a Christmas shop. It sells Christmas stuff all year. I’d never heard of such a thing.

    I’m told it’s very famous. Certainly it makes an impression. Have to confess I’m in the “Christmas belongs to December” crowd on a good day. Hate it with a vengeance on a bad day.

    So, if you want to buy Christmas decorations or presents all year round, this is ideal for you!

    My wallet was not disturbed.

    What to buy: Christmas stuff, if you really must.

    What to pay: Not sure. I denied myself.

    Medieval Shop (also not its real name)-: In days of old......

    A knight to greet you....
    1 more image

    This shop sells the most fascinating array of suits of armour and all things medieval. More of a boy's shop than a girl's shop I would think, however, they do have ladies headgear.

    What to buy: Full size suit of armour and all manner and means of toys depicting medieval days of knights in shiny armour.

    What to pay: Sorry, I had no intention of buying anything so I didn't find out how the stock was priced.

    Welcome......

    This shop is right in the thick of things and you can't miss it because it has a larger than life bear waiting at the front door to wecome you.

    What to buy: Inside you will find more teddy bears than you could ever imagine. All shapes and all sizes. there are also other souvenir type things on sale.

    What to pay: You could possibly pick up a small bear for a few euro or if you've got money to burn and love teddy bears, I guess the sky would be the limit.

    Kaethe Wohlfahrt: Queen of the Gift shops

    by Maryimelda Updated Dec 15, 2009

    The famouse KW delivery van....

    The name Kaethe Wohlfahrt is extremely well known in many parts of Europe but none more so than in Germany and Rothenburg in particular. The majority of gift shops in Rothenburg bear the name of Kaethe Wohlfahrt and her Christmas Museum is an absolute delight.

    What to buy: I think that the dolls are my favourite in all of these shops. There are so many different varieties and the most outstanding feature of so many of them is the eyes. You would swear they were human.

    What to pay: Not as much as you may think. Not cheap mind you, but still affordable.

    It is often said that presentation is everything and with this particular emporium of fine food, the saying is true. this is the finest food presentation I have ever seen, bar none and I mean that. It would be impossible to walk past without stopping to look at the very least.

    What to buy: I think I could go wild just on the sausages.

    What to pay: I wouldn't think that the fare would be very cheap, but then I wouldn't know being from another country.

    Any Bakery: Schneeballs in RODT

    by SandiM Written Apr 29, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to any bakery in RODT and select your choice of Schneeball. If you go to a bakery called 'Diller's' (and apparently there are a few of them around town), you will certainly get a wide variety of Schneeball to sample (chcolate covered, cinnamon, powder sugar, speckled, etc), and these are all machine-made, I am told. Other bakeries sell hand-made. My take on this particular foodstuff is this: a Schneeball is the product of leftover pastry cut from pies, etc and fisted up into a ball, then deep fried briefly before being coated with various sweet concoctions. It is generally a firm pastry, therefore a firm bite is needed. I nibbled, slowly, taking 2 days to finish one Schneeball at various tea times. My hotel staff advised me that Diller's bakeries produce machine-made Schneeballs, but you can also purchased the hand-made ones as well at other bakeries (so decide if you want authentic or not!). The dough itself was quite bland, it was the coating that made it slightly more interesting. It's a must to try in this city, but be prepared to take your time eating it. Around 2.20 euro at time of this printing (April 2008).

    What to pay: 2.20 euro (at time of this printing)

    Lots of places to buy souvenirs

    A toy storefront
    2 more images

    No particular shop, just meandor around the town and you will find no shortage of places to shop for souvenirs. In particular, we found lots of toy stores, souvenir shops, and Christmas decorations.

    What to buy: I really truly wish I remembered the name of shop, but it's on one of the main streets. My favorite store contained suits of armor, swords, and masks. See photos attached!

    What to pay: Your average postcards, etc. Unless you buy a suit of armor, of course. Truly, you can buy (great) food for reasonable prices, parking is marginal, and not buy anything else and still enjoy the town for hours
