If you've been to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, you may have seen Kaethe Wohlfahrt's, that shop that sells all that christmas stuff etc.
But if you're looking for christmas decoration Seiffen (a village in Saxony) is the place to go...this whole village is all just about christmas...they sell Nussknackers and all these things the whole year...but if you want to go there, December is the best time (although there are a LOT of tourists there in the winter)
There are some pretty good restaurants (I'd personally recommend "Die Binge" in the center of Seiffen), an open-air museum, and a nice swimming pool aswell. The holiday flats and hotels are generally good...clean, comfortable....

Anyway, it's a nice place for hiking too, and there and various other things to do in that part of the Erzgebirge...I've added some pictures of Seiffen itself ... but there's a lot more to see..(too bad I don't have any pictures that show the village at night)
