auch bei schlechtem Wetter eine Reise wert, viel Glas, cooles Labyrinth, interessante Ausstellung, nette Sachen zu kaufen! more »even in bad weather, a journey worth to buy lots of glass, cool maze, interesting exhibition, nice stuff!View original
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
