The magic of Christmas all year round


A visit to the Christmas Museum will put you in the festive mood – even if it isn’t even Advent! The doors of the museum are open all year round. This is where the Christmas festival enjoyed by our grandparents and great grandparents is recreated.


Experience the entire historic spectrum of the traditional family festival and gain a visual impression of how Christmas decorations have evolved over the years. 


Enjoy a “heavenly” atmosphere of enchanting Christmas tree decorations, cribs, Christmas pyramids from the workshops of the Erzgebirge, figurines and candleholders, incense burners and lots lots more. The 150 historical Father Christmas figures are something particularly special and will make every eye shine brightly, not just the children’s!


Opening times

Museum is open every day from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m. from 1 April to 23 December.
