German Folk Art From Erzgebirge Germany

Join Barbara from the Hahndorf Candlemaker as she explains the background, carving styles and stories behind the handmade German Folk Art.

Learn the stories behind the handmade German Folk Arts from the Erzgebirge Mountain range in Saxony Germany.

Today in the Erzgebirge Mountains, the tradition of creating beautiful wooden folk art lives on.

In villages like Seiffen, Olbernau, Schneeberg and Gruenhainichen, hundreds of dedicated and skilled people continue to create. In some cases, modern technology and modern machines have been applied to production.

But basically, much is unchanged from 100 years ago. New styles and new models are devised each year, however the tradition of the Erzgebirge has been preserved in each product and for decades to come.

Did you know that the Hahndorf Candlemaker in Hahndorf is also the home of German Folk Art in Australia? The Christmas decorations and gifts available all year round are stunning and highly collectable.
