Weihnachtspyramide a Christmas tradition!

A Weihnachtspyramide, also known as a Christmas Pyramid, comes from the Ore Mountains of Germany. They can now be found all over Germany and parts of the United States.

It’s origin dates back to the Middle Ages of western and southern Europe and became a combination of Christmas tree construction and of capstans (a vertical axled rotating machine) which were used in the mines of the Ore’s Mountains.

(“Christmas Pyramid.” Wikipedia the free encyclopedia. Maryana Pinchuk. December 2008)

These pyramids consist of a layered carousel, topped with a propeller which is powered by candles.

As the propeller spins, the layers rotate to create a moving scenery of holiday decor.

Most Weihnachtspyramide use small slender candles that are 4” in height and 1/2” in diameter and can be quite hard to find. Some Christmas Pyramids use a combination of tealights, votives or the small 4” candles also known as chime candles.


Look no further as Candles 4 Less carries Tealight Candles, Votive Candles and Party/Chime Candles to help power your Weihnachtspyramide.

Choose from our color drop down menu for either red or white Party/Chime Candles at $6.99 for a box of 20.
