Beautiful glass exhibition
Oct 2019
We get there by car and stoped at the Glass factory . We saw an amazing live demo how glass masters manufacture beautiful objects . The shop of the factory presents beautiful objects like vaze ,animals and other. Enjoyed very much. In the same place there are few others shops of artizanal products.

Dec 2018 • Couples
Hidden off the beaten track this little village really is a hidden gem.

The glass factory provides an insight into the the art of glasswork and has a sales room to purchase locally made glassware.

Pleanty of places to eat in the village and wonder at the amazing views

Interesting

We have stopped here several times and always seem to come away with a fascinating piece of glassware. It has an amazing selection of glassware and you can watch it being made, there are some shops to the rear, a fair bit of tat to me but amongst it all good German wooden toys and linen.

A Tourist Spot.

It is said that the crafting techniques at the glassworks have their origin in the Roman Empire and have been preserved to these days.
If you enter the 'Glasshütte', you'll find the glass blowing section at the left (you'll notice the heat development from there).
Demonstrations are given here and you can also try to blow your own master piece of glass.
The rest of the building is used as a shop, where you can buy glass items (not cheap and doubtfull whether everything was produced here).
In the adjacent building, you'll find a restaurant in the middle and several shops around it.
If you've got plenty of time in Monschau (or parked yoor car nearby), it's recommendable to visit this place. Also a good alternative for rainy days.

Went here with Leger coach trip on Christmas markets. Could spend a fortune in glass shop. Lots of things for gifts and quite cheap. You can also watch the men at work blowing the glass. Loved it

Nice Glassware and other shops inside the complex
Nov 2017 • Friends
Situated on the outskirts of Monschau, this place is fantastic for anyone wanting to buy glass items and inside the complex cheaper gifts are available, mainly aimed at tourists.

You are able to enter for free to look at the glassware in the main area, if you want to see the glass blown it will cost you 5 euros, whilst inside the main area, towards the rear is another opening where you will find a cafe, WC's and other gift stalls with cheaper goods.

Blow your own glass
Aug 2017 • Family
You can sit and watch the glass blowers for as long as you like, for no charge. It's fascinating to watch. For €5 you can have a go yourself, and keep the resulting bottle for watering house plants. I don't know what the minimum age is for this, but they allowed our 6 year-old to do it.

Lots of glassware for sale, and the prices are a lot more reasonable than Moreno...

The whole shipping complex that's attached is a bit naff, and just aimed at the gullible tourist with more money than sense.

Beautiful Glassware
Dec 2016 • Family
I was here today and there is a huge array of glass objects to view and buy. The place was quiet on a weekday with no pressure to purchase. The handicraft hall at the back of the glass shop has clothing, jewelry,amazing tiny glass animals, hats, handbags and more. They have really beautiful Christmas decorations too...some very fragile. There is a cafe in the middle and a traditional German cafe across the road to get beer etc.

Lots and lots of shops
Oct 2016 • Family
Situated on the outskirts of Monschau, this place is fantastic for anyone wanting to buy glass items. You can watch glass blowing, and even pay to let your children have a go. The glass ornaments are amazing, all different shapes sizes, colours and prices. There are other shops as well and a cafe/bar. Nice pace
