This is a proper Christmas Store. Lovely wooden decorations, handmade in Germany and some with limited editions. The prices reflect the quality - you get what you pay for. I would love to come back here around Christmas time as it must be amazing.

There are two Kathe Wohlfahrt stores in Bruges. This review is in relation to the bigger one in town. First of all, the prices of the Christmas ornaments are very expensive. I was looking at a Christmas ball with Brugge written on it and it...More
