Highlights


Opened in 1995 to celebrate 100 years of Swarovski and with two recent transformations, the glittering labyrinth has already enchanted more than ten million visitors from all over the world. Under the direction of the multimedia artist André Heller, who developed the concept for this magical place, the crystalline treasure trove in the interior of the legendary Giant is continually growing.

14 Chambers of Wonder
Not far from Innsbruck, in Wattens, a water spouting Giant with sparkling eyes guards over a subterranean world, in which 14 Chambers of Wonder following historical models sustain dazzling crystalline artistic works.

The paintings, sculptures and installations by renowned artists such as Brian Eno, Keith Haring, Salvador Dalí, Niki de Saint Phalle, John Brekke, Susanne Schmögner and Jim Whiting invite us on a sensual journey into a sparkling labyrinth seemingly eliminating the border between dream and reality.

Harmonious fragrant compositions by Jane Haidacher and mysterious sounds make a visit to the crystalline world of magic an unforgettable event for all the senses. 700.000 visitors, predominantly from Germany, Austria, Italy, Eastern Europe and Asia are drawn each year into the Giant's spell. Thus, the Crystal Worlds is amongst the most popular tourist destinations in Austria.
