The glass magic land...

...is probably one of the most beautiful adventure playgrounds in the Harz Mountains. Here children of all ages can let off steam. Between swing bridges, ropes, towers and other equipment no boredom will arise. The entire outdoor area has been lovingly and imaginatively redesigned into a spacious park with a small stream running through it and surrounding the sunny terrace of the café.

Glass made to measure

As one of the last still producing glassworks, we offer individual glass objects of all kinds for private and business customers, from high-quality lighting glass to glass blocks to individual productions for the preservation of historical monuments. As a small manufactory we are able to cover all areas from individual production to large-scale production.

You are a glass artist or designer and work professionally with the material glass, but you do not have your own furnace or the possibility to realize your designs? We are happy to support you! You can rent our production area - with or without glassmaker!
