Tour of the glassworks


Experience the Eisch glassworks at first hand. We have extended the classic glassworks tour to include a number of media installations. Here you will find a memorable introduction to the Eisch Family and the history of Glashütte Eisch. Then you can watch directly beside the furnace as a glowing mass is transformed into artistic objects. Finishing techniques such as polishing, engraving, painting or three-dimensional sand-blasting open up unlimited possibilities for the creative departments at Glashütte Eisch. During the course of 2016 a further extension of the visitors’ area is planned. Then you will be able to learn, for example, what Glashütte Eisch has to do with glass music and you will be able to try out a glass instrument yourself.

Special tours are offered during the holidays, e.g. a tour of the glassworks for children or how to cast glass charms . You will find the dates and details under “Events”.
