We visited Joska on Christmas Day last year during our German holiday! It felt like we had stepped in to a fairy tale... A different item in each section of their factory and we had the wonderful opportunity to do glass blowing. A must see if you are planning on visiting this area!

If you find yourself in Bavaria, you may want to take a trip at the Joska Glass Factory, situated in Bodenmais, Bayerisher Walt (Bavarian Forest). It is an equisite glass factory, where you can find all sorts of things made of glass. Flowers, glasses, vases, feng-shui thingies, trophies (some of them awarded to celebrities like Arnold Schwartzenegger, Michael Schumacher, etc),... More

Big place with many items, but lacking originality. Many factor produced glass items. I was looking for more original glass art items, and this was not available

They cater glass to all over the world. If you are lucky you can catch the engraver. You can get any piece of glass personalized very cheap.

Very good selection of various glass items; huge store with amusement park characteristics (great for children); very good prices - 1/3 to 1/2 of what one would have to pay elsewhere

Cavernous temple to everything glass. These days more space is devoted to ornaments and decorations but if it can be made in glass, you will find it here. Even if you don't buy much, you will marvel at the wide variety of items at all price points. A must-see place if you're in Bodenmais, or nearby.

It was the photo of Arnold Schwarzenegger on the leaflet that caught my attention and after a little persuading I managed to get the rest of the family to agree to stop in at the 'glass' factory on our way home. It is brilliant and just a shame that we didn't have more time to look around. You could very... More

This is a huge crystal and decoration store. Their products range from cheap to very nice, the prices are reasonable and affordable. They have a huge playground which is great for kids and for 10 Euro you can blow your own crystal. If you are looking for expensive first class crystal then this is probably not your place. You should... More
