Swarovski Kristallwelten, Wattens

#2 of 53 in Museums in Tirol
Specialty Museum · Museum
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.

  • Employees were RACIST to me. Their behavior towards Indians are pathetic. They have even deleted my review from google. Instead of giving apology, their action was to delete the review.  more »

  • This museum is so cute and intimate. We came when it was cloudy so the "grounds" portion of the museum was wet but not a problem, some of the art looked spooky in the clouds. Every room has a smell associated with it and it's amazing.
  • Take your pace and see everything to enjoy. Read in the displays. Look at the store displays. Sit in the cafe. Enjoy the gardens. An amazing place and outing.
  • Please give me a like if helpful👍. Very interesting place, a feast for the eyes and senses. You have to pay quite a lot to even visit the shop! however once inside you will realise it is money well spent. The exhibits are mind blowing unique. Lovely gardens too with amazing landscaping and features. Free parking. A great day out!
  • Unbelievable for kids! I really enjoyed the museum/art exhibit as well!! I only have it 4 stars for the lack of food options. Next time we r going we r bringing our own food. Beautiful outdoor location for a picnic!
  • I didn't expect much of this place, but in the end I was blown away. People might associate crystals with kitsch, but this is more like a collection of modern installation art. The exhibits (indoor and outdoor) are all different and it's obvious, that a lot of thought and preparation went into this place. It's like Alice's trip to wonderland: a psychedelic experience.
