About Us

Based in Sydney Australia, The German Christmas Shop is an online store stocking authentic handcrafted European homewares. Sourced from some of Europe's finest artisans, our range of exquisite decorations are the perfect way to Adorn your home this festive season. 

As mad keen Christmas nuts we have spent more than one Christmas in Europe and in particular, Germany. It was during these travels that we became inspired to open this business. In our first year we decided to start with decorations from two iconic German brands Christian Ulbricht and Bettina Franke. The families of both have been making decorations in the Erzgebirge (Iron Ore) Mountains in eastern Germany since the late 19th century. With success, our business has grown and we now represent many artisan families including favourites Graupner Holzminiaturen and Gunter Reichel.

The German Christmas Shop remains a passion business for us. As a husband and wife team, we continually strive to find the most beautifully made decorations possible. On our multiple trips to Europe we have met all of our artisans (and their families) in person. Touring their workshops and witnessing first hand their level of skill and attention to detail, we are confident that you will not find better items to Adorn your home with.
