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.
