Swarovski Crystal Worlds Wattens

Marvelling like a child is rare these days, but one cannot help it when standing in the interior of a huge crystal, watching light refracted in hundreds of mirrored surfaces. The imposing Crystal Dome is the showpiece of the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens.

For over a hundred years the Swarovski family has been demonstrating how artistically crafted glass crystals have the power to enchant. With their Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens the family went one step further, creating a special cosmos of wonder, in which the magic of crystal is "staged" in a variety of imaginative ways.

The brainchild of the Austrian multimedia artist André Heller, the Crystal Worlds consist of fourteen "Chambers of Wonder" created by world-renowned artists and designers such as Alexander McQueen, Tord Boontje and Brian Eno. And they have lived up to their name ever since, in the fairytale winter landscape made up of thousand of crystals, in the world's largest kaleidoscope, in the mysterious ice street where the visitor becomes an explorer, or in the previously mentioned Crystal Dome.

Visitors will be open-mouthed with amazement - and not just the young ones.
