Hahndorf is the oldest surviving German settlement in Australia. German settlers arrived in the area in 1839. Many of the founding families still live in Hahndorf today. The photograph above was taken in 1881 of the main street in Hahndorf.
The German Village Shop is situated in the heart of Hahndorf in one of the original township buildings. The heritage listed stone building was built in 1866 and was once a stables and stone masonry.
The German Village Shop business has been established since 1989 and the current owner Justin Lang purchased the business from his parents. Its been in the family for over 15 years and has remained a favourite attraction to international, interstate and local travels for over a decade!
Next, we will detail our pledge to uphold German history and tradition and honour our German ancestors heritage!
Despite German culture already proving it can last the test of time, more intimate traditions don't last forever unless actively nourished! Here at the German Village Shop we strive to provide people with a place and products that honour their German heritage. We specialise in providing knowledge about German traditions and import authentic handcrafted German products.
We love everything German here at the German Village Shop and that includes traditional German products such as Black Forest Cuckoo Clocks, Traditional Beer Steins, Christmas Decorations, Weather-houses and more!
We also love helping people celebrate the German way at Christmas time and ramp up the festivities at Oktoberfest and Easter!
Next we will introduce our family (staff) at The German Village Shop who help bring this mission to life!
