Glasi Hergiswil, Hergiswil
(4.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
The Glasi Hergiswil is a Swiss factory that manufactures glass, located in Nidwalden, Switzerland. It was founded by the brothers Siegwart in 1817. Because of old machines and technology, the Glasi was threatened to be closed. However, due to the efforts of the community, the factory remains open and now offers visitors the opportunity to observe workers as they produce the glass. The Glasi also has a museum and is home to the first glass labyrinth in Switzerland.

  • We spent a very interesting two hours watching glass blowing , pouring and casting, followed by a tour of the museum a reasonably priced purchase in the shop. 
  • Already since some time has to be paid for the Museum, but the museum pass or the Raiffeisen account card is valid. You have no passport, one will be the entrance fee for purchases. (In the 1st or 2.Wahl-Laden on the same day) Pro purchase from Fr. 70. - refund of tickets through Mrs 7 - Pro purchase from Fr. 50 - entering the glass maze costs refund of tickets through Fr. 5. – (cumulative) 5 francs in addition and is non-refundable. The Glasi worth every franc and there are many playing facilities for children.

  • Interesting spot with a surprising amount to see. My family enjoyed the museum tour and the labyrinth, and we really liked the znirP und nisseznirP. Unfortunately, we ran out of time before the 16:00 closing time. The factory is also located on a nice spot on the lake with a really nice playground nearby.
  • Perhaps the most famous Swiss glaziery. Beautiful and large choice of glas objects. Quite expensive
  • It was so much fun blowing the glass and seeing how the glass is being transformed into a beautiful form!!! The muséum is one of the Best I have been to! Highly recommended for the entire family! Also its just near Lake Lucerne so after visiting Lucerne, you have to visit!
  • Great day out! The museum is well made and there are lots of other things to do such as glass blowing, watching the workers and best of all the maze, which is quite brilliant and takes about 10 minutes.
  • It is amazing only the word to describe it amazing and you learn a lot about glass no one can hate it
