Reidel Glass is hot as it is hot liquid glass that the artists are making into amazing vases, glasses, pitchers, etc. they also have a presentation diorama that you walk through and learn about your senses. Of course Riedel Glass has a store front where one can purchase firsts, seconds and even thirds. One could go here once a week... More

My husband and I have done the tour, and I absolutely agree with the other positive reviews that it is totally enjoyable and educational and a must do when in or around Kufstein (If you have small children they will also be amazed by the tour). It is amazing to see the craftsmen at work. Each piece of glassware is... More

My husband and I were given tickets to the Riedel Glass factory tour and wine tasting as a honeymoon gift. We didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived there and were greeted by the friendly staff. After spending some time observing the glassblowing on the factory floor (which was very cool, by-the-way), we were... More

The Riedel glass factory in Kufstein is worth a visit, if you are in the greater area, including driving down from Munich. Kufstein is located right on the other side of the border from Germany and if you take the Kufstein exit on the Austrian highway, you do NOT have to buy a vignette (decal) for the Austrian highways. The... More

Our group visited the glassblowing factory. We observed the glassblowing process from a balcony above the factory floor. While the temperature was quite hot, it was very interesting to watch the making of goblets and decanters. The video portion of the tour was a little too abstract and philosophical for me. (The topic was our senses and perception of things).... More

Ran into this by accident.. and it was a pleasant surprise. If you like good glass and need matching glasses for your wine or if you admire beautiful works of art, then do stop here. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Found the tour very informative. You go at your own pace and each process is explained on the way. Cannot believe every glass is actually made by hand and one at a time. I left the factory with a greater understanding of the costs and why each glass is so valuable. There is an outlet store attached where you can... More

A great experience, I couldn´t try any wine because I was driving. Even if you don´t do the factory tour pop in to the shop and get yourself some glasses. They have every style imaginable and you wont be disappointed with the quality of the product. I thought the glasses might break in the dishwasher but no they are much... More

Far surpassed our expectations. Everyone in our party was impressed with the tour of the factory. For those that appreciate wine, try the taste test following the tour for Euro 5. You may be surprised with the result. Also visit the outlet for some good deals.
