Who We Are

We come from a long line of skilled men and women, who throughout our years of existence have been acknowledged as highly accomplished craftspersons.

Our family business was born in Bavaria, Germany. And though our operations have expanded over the years, we continue to stay true to our roots and operate mainly from this region.

The woodcraft traditions passed on by our forebears live on to this day, and our magnificent handicrafts reflect the rich German history that lives inside each handmade product we create.

Some of the products we offer are German Christmas ornaments, Christmas stars, Christmas pyramids, smokers, and nutcrackers.

We have also innovated our products to meet the desires and needs of the 21st-century customer. And so, you’ll find a mix of both the novel and timeless amongst our handicraft collection.

We are the Rascher family company. Our artistic beginnings came from the god-like hand of Fritz Rascher and Bavarian Legacy is the only authorized distributor of our family’s products.

 

Christmas Stars

There's no better way to symbolize the “Stars Of Bethlehem” than to use these beautiful masterpieces. Our German Christmas stars variety covers everyone's favorite: indoors, outdoors, with lights or without, large or small, available in all sorts of colors.

Ornaments

No Christmas is complete without some German ornaments. They are the perfect adornments for any Christmas tree. Whether you like the classic glass balls or looking for a more entertaining figurine, our selections of German ornaments are sure to delight you. Some of our best-selling products are the Guardian Angels, Lucky Bears, and Big Band - all handcrafted to warm up your Christmas evenings.

Pyramids

There’s really nothing quite like German Christmas pyramids. They are exceedingly unique in that once they're lit, an atmosphere of festivity rises up to the air. We have both traditional and more modern Christmas pyramid options available, and some of our favorite picks can be seen below.

Smokers

German smokers are chiefly used as incense holders. And just like many of the world’s incense-related traditions, lighting smokers has a significant meaning in German culture. When German smokers are lit, the end of the Christmas season is here. Consider participating in this unique German custom by getting your own vintage German smokers, available in various designs.

Bavarian Culture and History

Christmas was, and still is something to look forward to in Bavarian culture. From the age-old festivities of sharing mulled wine to buying and sharing handmade gifts, it is a lifestyle that we still emphasize and pride in, whether in Germany or overseas.

If you haven’t celebrated Christmas the Bavarian way, you are missing out!

Now, unless you’re based in Germany, it’s pretty hard to experience Bavarian Christmas celebrations firsthand.

But one way you can bring some Bavarian Christmas vibe home is by getting yourself one of our handicrafts. If you’re in the mood to share the experience with your dearest, choose one of our great selections as a Christmas gift.

We recommend getting one of the German Smokers. The first German smokers were developed over a century ago in Heidelberg and were believed to have the power to ward off evil.

And hey, won’t it be fun to join the German traditions of saying goodbye to the Christmas season with your loved ones?
