  • They charge 5 Euros to watch the demonstation, bu it was worth it! We were so engrossed in the works of art he was creating, we completely forgot to take pictures!  more »
  • You can join here all the time. At the entrance you are welcomed temporarily by a Lord of the entrance fee of €5 p.Pers. decreases and the way to the seats know times you can directly go and watch, then afterwards you will be asked to pay. The kiln is located in the middle and is surrounded on three sides by seats. Right in front of the stove 3 rows of seats are übereinander...von here you have a good look in the oven opening with Glut...gutes for photographers. It means that you get about 20 minutes presentation, we took quite 30-40 minutes. The glassblower demonstrated three things: a shell, a closed heart and a Trinkglas...jeweils with forgiveness stanchions. Finally he blew up so long a glass bubble for the amusement of children present, till she burst. Quite interesting, but without commentary and explanations - quite non-obtrusive, because you simply could go away at the end, without being redirected to the sales room.

  • How to turn of the molten glass into a work of art! A pure moment of poetry, see these artists juggle with this paste in fusion, give him the most unexpected forms and this with apparent ease disconcerting. A show not to be missed.
