A company with history and tradition

Created more than 160 years ago, for the first time in the bosom of the Moravian Church, the Herrnhuter Stern is considered to be the wellspring of all Christmas stars. The first star of this kind, made of paper and cardboard, shone in the boarding school rooms of the Moravian Church at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Invented by a mathematics teacher, the star was used to give pupils a better understanding of geometry. From then on, the children crafted their stars on the first Sunday in Advent and carried this custom back to their families. Even today, beginning the peaceful Christmas season with a Herrnhuter Stern is still a charming tradition.
