A rainy day so we thought we'd try the glass place. Very disappointing. It was busy (August and wet), the blow your own vase was €15 and you literally give 3 puffs if you're lucky. It was queued up so we gave it a miss. The rest was all in German and most of it was a shop. Even the... More

We had planned on doing the vase blowing where you get to blow your own vase for €15 but unfortunately it was the Sunday of a German holiday weekend and it was busy. Each vase takes 15 mins and there were a good 7-8 people in front of us so we skipped it. Watching them blow a few was neat... More

We loved this museum, we had heard great things about it but weren't sure we'd understand anything since we don't speak german. The museum had english on many things and was very interesting. We even got to blow our own vase, got to pick out colors and shape along with how the top was cut. We loved it! Hope to... More

A very cool place to visit. We've been to other glass museums and this one rates high on the list. Very friendly staff.

The glass museum is located inside of a glass store. You can buy anything from vases to toys for Christmas tree. If you want to visit the museum you need to pay at the cashier.

The glass hut shows travellers how the glass industry works and how artists sculpt figurines with extremely hot glass.. You also can get to blow your vases. Tip - if you are travelling on weekends then they only have 2 ppl doing the glass work and hence only glass vases are done figurines are done only during the weekdays .

Lovely 2-3 hours spent in browsing through the small museum and attached shops. The highlight for us was seeing the master craftsmen ( and women ) making the glass pieces- right from blowing to grinding and polishing them. And of course, blowing our own vase for 15 €. I thought it was a steal ( and I loved how it... More

The museum is interesting, but on the smaller side. But the real attraction is watching the glass blowing. There are two areas next to each other. On one side, the professional blowers are making the items they sell in the store. It is really fascinating to watch. Then on the other side you are invited to blow your own vase... More
