Glassworks

 

 

During your stay at Monschau, let us take you through 2000 years of glassmaking history. A visit to the glassworks offers memorable insights into the evolution of glassmaking and the decorative styles of past centuries. Witness the making of vases, plates, antique vessels, drinking glasses and other objects from red-hot glass stock during several daily on-site demonstrations.

Apart from molten glass in its various stages you can observe glassmakers at work on the glass furnace. Watch products being ground to an artistic finish and see glassworker's tools from past centuries. In addition, you will gain basic information about the manufacture of mouth-blown, hand-ground glass.
