Welcome to Original Heide!

The company Heide was founded in 1970 by Heinrich Demetz and has specialized in the production of Nativity figures over the years.

The Heide creations are more than mere crib figures. For the family Demetz they are an expression of many years of experience in sculpture, painting and tailoring, which has been passed down from generation to generation. Every single piece of art stands for noble design and precise, high-quality execution.


In 1980 the first dressed cribs were produced, which subsequently increasingly influenced the production and finally became the figurehead of the company Heide. By constantly striving to increase the quality of the product and seeking innovation, family Demetz developed different collection styles.
