There are lots of classics and rare items to do with Christmas that are really worth seeing. Their backgrounds are sometimes really surprising and exciting. The focus in the permanent exhibition is on objects between 1870 and 1950. For example, besides classic Christmas tree decorations and popular gift bringers you can also admire Christmas decorations from the Erzgebirge, Christmas tree stands, Christmas postcards, cardboard nativity scenes, feather and paper Christmas trees, Christmas tree lights from candles with candle holders to electric fairy lights and much more. We also do not forget Advent with Advent wreaths and Advent calendars.
Christmas tree decorations in a whole variety of forms made from glass, paper, cotton wool, pewter, tragacanth and leonic wire are almost inseparably associated with Christmas.
The preparation time before Christmas is called “Advent” from the Latin “adventus” = the coming (of Christ). Both young and old associate Advent calendars with wonderful memories. By contrast, the Advent tree is practically unheard of nowadays.
