The Swarovski Crystal Worlds have been delighting visitors from all over the world since 1995. The crystalline world of experience, including a park landscape, was created to celebrate Swarovski's centenary. The Crystal Worlds were redesigned and expanded in 2015 to celebrate its twentieth anniversary.

Immerse yourself in the sparkling world of Swarovski.

The giant and his chambers of wonders

In 1995, multimedia artist André Heller created a world of wonders to mark Swarovski's centenary. Heller created the Swarovski Crystal Worlds in the form of a giant as the thematic centerpiece. And he invented the story of the giant who had set out to experience the world with all its treasures and wonders. With this knowledge, the giant retired to Wattens in Tyrol and has been "watching" over his Chambers of Wonder ever since.

The original principle of these cabinets of curiosities is based on the historic cabinet of curiosities in Ambras Castle, which in the 16th century attempted to capture all the knowledge of its time as a universal collection. In the Chambers of Wonder, as in an art exhibition, internationally and nationally renowned artists, designers and architects interpret crystal in their own way. The art installations made from the sparkling material are special spatial and experiential concepts.

Welcome to a magical world that opens up when you enter the Swarovski Crystal Worlds through the giant's head...

The garden in the Swarovski Crystal Worlds

The centerpiece of the new garden is the Crystal Cloud, designed by Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot. This monumental installation floats above the black mirror water and invites visitors to pause for a moment. With an area of around 1,400 square meters, this mystical masterpiece is the largest of its kind in the world. The crystal cloud consists of more than 800,000 hand-set crystals from Swarovski. A sloping path leads visitors directly to the mirror water, in which the light of the crystals is captured like stars in the night sky - even in broad daylight.

The crystalline garden complements the range of underground chambers of wonder and the many special children's tours and workshops around the crystal studio.

The renowned architectural firm Snøhetta designed a play tower, located in the south of the garden, which offers a wide variety of play experiences on four levels and creates a very special spatial experience. These levels are also connected by a unique vertical climbing net that can be climbed freely at a height of almost 14 meters. Various activities are on offer: from climbing, swinging, swinging and sliding to seemingly floating.

The façade of the play tower consists of 160 crystalline facets, no two of which are alike. The panes are printed with an innovative pattern made up of millions of tiny motifs inspired by the history of Swarovski. At all times, the view from the inside to the outside is clear, and the activities inside are also visible from the outside. In the evening, the object appears as a spectacular body of light.

The area for children of all ages is complemented by an innovative outdoor playscape. A free-form topography made of steel and wood offers children countless opportunities to play. Not only are familiar activities offered here, the children also have the opportunity to discover new games and forms of movement.
