Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Good day trip. Easy to reach. Good value and interesting.
  • Highly recommended for anyone to see. Go see the museum part and watch the production live.
  • 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
  • When ever you feel cold and you want to see something very interesting, that is the place to go.
