Create an itinerary including Swarovski Kristallwelten
Enter Swarovski Kristallwelten, an underground museum, through a hole in the hillside and step inside a massive crystalline theater. This attraction was created in 1995 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Swarovski crystal company. Designed by multimedia artist Andre Heller, the crystal museum encompasses art, music, dance, and literature into one overwhelming experience. "The Giant," a face landscaped on the hillside with crystals for eyes and a water fountain for a mouth, greets you as you approach the entrance of the museum. Swarovski Kristallwelten is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • We rearranged our trip the last minute and decided to come here on our anniversary day. That’s why we didn’t have time to study about this place in such detail. We absolutely enjoyed everything...

  • Excellent museum. It's far from Innsbruck and pricey BUT totally worth it. I'd say it's a day trip. My surprise were: reasonable restaurant price and solid playground for children. Oh yes, you can totally feel people here are in business of making money. Everything is translated and very very well organized (like in the US)
  • Absolutely amazing! Each room was perfect in its design in reaching your senses, smell, sight and hearing. The garden was equally as stunning and had so many photo opportunities. It was honestly like stepping into another world. I loved it and would highly recommend the trip for those that are interested.
  • One of the best place to Visit in Austria.. plan a full day and I am sure you will enjoy it.. It was different rooms of Crystals.. a beautiful Garden of Clouds. And play area along with clown show for Kids..
  • Boring. I was there with 3 girls (14, 12 and 2). I wasn't the only one who was disappointed... The only cool chamber was the one with the holograms - Gandhi, Martin Luther King, etc giving their famous speeches. Playground might be nice for younger kids in the summer.
  • The space is quite big with plenty of parking. The structure is quite big and the museum has a lot of interesting rooms. The shop at the end is massive with plenty of options and space to move around. The staff is very nice and helpful. The playground for the children is really big and I'm sure it's a fun time when the weather is nice (it was very cold when I went)
