Shimmering candlelight and the whimsical glow of a traditional lantern can help add that magical festive feeling to your home — and the workshops tucked away in the mountain region of Germany's Erzgebirge can offer just that. Handmade and deeply imbued with local culture and history, our German Christmas candle holders, such as Müller’s Christmas caroler and church candle holder, are ideal for adding a taste of Erzgebirge’s folk art tradition into your home.
Our German Christmas candle arches are also a fantastic way to add twinkling lights to your festive display. These have a rich history, dating back to when Erzgebirge was the centre of the world’s mining industry, as the candle arch represented the movement of the sun across the sky, which the miners missed while working. It is thought that these candle arches became more ornate and special during their Christmas shifts, and so the Erzgebirge candle arch was born.
As well as German Christmas candle arches, you may also want to incorporate the subtle glow of a wooden lantern into your festive decorations. Seiffener Volkskunst creates lantern kits which are great to make as a group over the festive period, as well as handcrafted LED lanterns, which are equally joyful.
All products are handmade in Germany’s famous Erzgebirge region and come with a two-year product warranty.
