We had a nice experience stopping here and viewing the small museum as well as getting 2 pieces of glass blown. My 7 year old son also picked his colors and did his own. They have a small kids' play area to help keep the kids entertained.

This museum offers the chance to witness all types of glass manufacturing and their singel steps. You can stand directly next to the production facilities and watch the workers and artist do their work. The activity of course is completely indoors which makes it perfect for a rainy day. The workshops are not enormous so do not expect to spend... More

Cool museum in the middle of the Black Forrest. You have the opportunity to blow your own vase followed by a small museum. There's a large gift shop that sells a variety of glassware. There's also a small restaurant, the food was very good. Shouldn't take more than an hour to do everything. Overall a decent attraction but you'll get... More

We headed here to fill half an hour and stayed for nearly two hours. Yes, it is a shop, but gives you an idea of the range of glass products made here, and of course, there are now the Christmas trinkets in. There was no wait to blow your own vase, so for 15 euro we have a completely unique... More

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

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.
