The work of Oberammergau wood carvers was admired as far back as the 16th century. The Upper Bavarian municipality is famous for its wooden religious figurines and nativity scenes. That being said, the local artists also have lovely items that are more modern. If you would like to try for yourself, you can book a wood carving course with experienced masters of the trade.
If you’d rather purchase a finished piece, you can find a selection at places, such as the Holzschnitzerei Albl.
