Chambers Of Wonder

Nestled in the pristine Tyrol region, Swarovski Crystal Worlds is an experience to soak in. First established in 1895 by Daniel Swarovski with a vision and mission to view crystal not merely as a material, but as an inspiration.

 

Today more than 13 million people have visited this shining example of Swarovski’s magical place where you will be bewildered by the sights and sounds. Swarovski Crystal Worlds has been designed in a way to showcase to you the many facets of cut crystals.

 

The Giant

 

The most omnipresent landmark of the Swarovski Crystal Worlds. Multimedia artist André Heller created a world of wonder to celebrate Swarovski’s hundredth anniversary in 1995. Just like a fable and he developed the story of a Giant who set out to experience the world and all of its treasures and wonders. With this knowledge, the Giant settled down in Wattens/Tyrol, where he has watched over his Chambers of Wonder ever since.

 

The Garden

 The garden of the Giant contains contemporary art as well as ancient history, a place where crystal becomes a holistic experience. You will discover a venue where you can  experience beauty, inspiration and immerse yourself by taking a leisurely stroll as you  relax and rejuvenate.

 

 

 

 

 


Playtower – Playing on Four Levels

 

PlaytowerThere is always something for everyone and this section has been designed for the children as well as the child in us all. The façades of the tower, designed by architecture firm Snøhetta, consist of 160 crystalline facets, though no two are exactly alike. The panes are imprinted with an innovative pattern of millions of tiny animal motifs. Let loose the explorer in you as it offers the most varied activities from climbing, rocking, and swinging to sliding and even to what looks like floating.
