I love glass. I saw the most beautiful pieces and hope one day to have them but in the meantime had fun making my own vase. So pleased I did it!

It is a very nice museum/factory to visit. It is one of the few places that I know where you actually can help blowing your own vase. Choose the format, the colors/lines let the pro do his job, help him blowing a couple of times, wait for 20 minutes and for 15€ it is yours. Go to his colleague where... More

The glassblowing exhibition along with other things makes this a nice place to stop for an hour or two.

We were very disappointed in this visit. There was one glassblower working, supposedly doing a demonstration, but never spoke a word to describe the process. He made a very crude vase, placing it alongside about 50 others that were on sale for 15 Euro (no one was buying them because of the poor quality). The rest of the tour was... More

The tour was excellent and it was interesting watching the processes involved. We had visited several years ago and the hand made glass was still superb but the shop prices astounded us! We purchased a decanter and four brandy glasses last time for less than £100 now similar items now would cost £450. Inflation has not been that high!

Good to be able to see the workers blowing the glass right in front of you. Good for an hour or so and there is a cafe on site and lots of shops
