Käthe Wohlfahrt York
In August 2016 the first all year round Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas shop in Great Britain opened its doors in the picturesque city of York. York is easy to reach from London, Manchester or Leeds.
In the middle of the city and only 200 yards from the impressive York Minster, “Mulberry Hall”, one of York’s oldest and most beautiful houses, became the home to a unique Christmas world over two floors. It is worth a visit to the listed building, dating back to 1434, with its splendid Tudor front and a “priest hole” on the upper floor.
In the historical rooms, visitors can immerse themselves in a magical Christmas world, with a really wide selection of beautifully handmade and hand-painted Christmas decorations and gift ideas made of glass, wood and much more. Here visitors experience a world that transports you back in time to re-discover the well-known and the traditional (for example the well-known Erzgebirge decoration) but also includes modern styles. As Käthe Wohlfahrt´s only shop in Great Britain this is the only place where you will find their most popular designs, which are developed in the company´s own artist workshop in Rothenburg o.d.T./Germany. The experience would not be complete without a visit to our 1st floor Cuckoo Clock room. Here you will see a selection of beautiful, genuine cuckoo clocks made in Germany.
