Cullman Honors German Heritage with the Country’s Largest Christmas Pyramid

A sight to see and a great way to start the holidays!

There’s no better way to get into the holiday spirit than with a trip down to Cullman to visit the country’s largest Christmas pyramid!

Usually reserved for small, tabletop decorations here in the states, this pyramid is over 30 ft tall, completely handmade, and a must-see.

Cullman has a rich German history, and this pyramid is part of a growing attempt to embrace that rich heritage, especially during the holiday season. The Weihnachtspyramide, better known in English as a Christmas pyramid, is a traditional German decoration typically hung from the ceiling or set on a small table. It comes complete with wooden figures representing different symbols and seasonal themes.

And despite being a little larger than most, Cullman’s is no different. The six tiers of the pyramid are all specific to Cullman, featuring authentic police and firefighter uniforms and even a figure of Cullman’s founder, John Cullman.

The pyramid is located on the grounds of the Cullman County Museum across from Depot Park and is free to visit.
