As has now become customary, a magnificent Christmas tree decorated by Johann Wanner stands before the historic cathedral. A source of true inspiration, you are sure to find the right Christmas tree and the decorations to go with it right here. There are also plenty of scrumptious treats and dishes to choose from. Let your nose do the walking as you follow the scents under the shining snow globes between the old chestnut trees and high-quality products.
