Thomas, and Susanne Jeromin, from Germany, started decorating in June in order to achieve the spectacular feat.

Thomas said for him “Christmas means the whole year,” and is delighted with the achievement.

No room was left untouched by festive cheer and even the bedroom and bathroom were decorated.

Although the pair already held the record –which stood at 444 trees they were ambitious to go even further.

“We have expanded, there are now 89 trees in the new room alone,” boasted Susanne.

But Thomas added no particular skill set is required and said: “Anyone can simply decorate.”

The 57-year-old chef’s passion for collecting began 12 years ago, and he has now passed it on to his wife. 

The pair even have a rigorous decorating schedule and “decorate from 3 p.m. until the evening and even on weekends.”

The couple says they now own a staggering 108,000 baubles, including some Susanne crocheted herself.

They also like to design the trees according to themes.

These include a rubber ducky tree, an artificial fruit tree and a batman tree.

Swarms of Christmas enthusiasts flock to the couple’s home in Rinteln, Germany, at winter time to see the Christmas spectacle – and some even come from afar.

“We have even had guests from Switzerland who stopped by on their way north,” said Susan.
