If you like to discover how things are made this place is a must. I strongly recommend to watch the video (when you enter to your right.) even if you don't understand German. It shows the whole process of glad making and when you see the inside of the glass factory it all makes more sense. Make sure you check... More

We read alot abot glass factory and came back disappointed. No one there speaks english. If you wanna experience the glass making and get ugly Vaza you should pay 15 (!) €. All the art is selling for high price at the museum - so don't even bother. I gave 3 stars since you can at least see how they... More

We loved our visit to the Dorotheenhutte! Not only to blow your own glass vase and watch the craftsmen make beautiful glass bowls, but there's also a beautiful permanent Christmas market where you can buy ornaments.

Really it was exciting and colorful to see the making of glass vase. They give us an option of various color combinations before making the vase. It is beautiful to see how the vase is developed from the molten glass mixture by blowing. A must visit if you happen to visit black forest

We went here simply to blow our own glass vase. We weren't that interested in the rest of museum, but others may find it more interesting. We love having our own vase that we made together though, so it was worth it to us. They also have a nice shop to stop by, we ended up buying some great whiskey... More

A little bit about the Glass Museum in the Black Forest. We visited this in August 2014. I have always enjoyed glass, and really liked checking out this museum and "factory". It's impressive to see craftsmen still creating glass similar to the way it has been done for 1000's of years. There are various types of glass to see. You... More

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
