Almdorf Ammertal is situated in Bad Bayersoien, Germany; a little Bavarian village 30 km away from the Neuschwanstein castle. It is a famous woodcarving gift shop producing and selling beautiful woodcarvings and other Bavarian souvenirs since 1975. Hundreds of tourists from around the world visit this store each year.

Entering Almdorf Ammertal brought me to an enchanted world with Alpine folk music yodeling in the background and displayed items reflecting centuries of Bavarian tradition. Inside the store, you can find a wide array of fine woodcarvings and collectibles; all selected for uniqueness, quality, usefulness, and price.

Beer steins, musical cuckoo clocks from the Black Forest (a wooded mountain range in southwestern Germany), music boxes, nutcrackers and smokers, pewter, Christmas collectibles, and Alpine jewelry are among the specialties of Almdorf Ammertal.
Magnets, keychains, board games, and hats are also available in the store. My favorite items are the music boxes that play songs from The Beatles (I’m a Beatles fan) and the miniature animals.

costs € 16.50. Too pricey for me. A photo is enough :)
