Nutcrackers & Co.

For Dirndls, Lederhosen and less-known Bavarian crafts, there is a thin line between cheap souvenirs and the beautiful continuation of tradition. Romantix is one of those secluded places which offer the latter. Cuckoo clocks, nutcrackers and handmade tin soldiers lie in wait alongside valuable items from the Erzgebirge in the little shop at Pfisterstr. 6. Despite the shop’s tiny size, it’s likely that you will spend at least an hour discovering the miscellaneous tinsel angels, Santa Claus figures and other splendid Christmas decorations. If Romantix’s offering of beautiful pieces is too overwhelming, you can also order a selection of crafts through a few clicks at The online shop—also represented with a stand at the Marienplatz Christkindlmarkt—sells everything Christmassy from porcelain lighthouses to wooden pyramids. But remember: Instead of getting your chosen gifts over the counter immediately, online orders take two weeks to deliver. <<<
