Open Factory and Museum

Glasi has fascinated millions of people since 1992. The core of the open glass factory is the Glasi show «Formed by Fire». It is a walk-in film, theatre and time-machine all at once. In addition, the exhibition «Phenomenal Glass» helps the public to actively discover the characteristics and effects of the mysterious material sand. Its lakeside location offers enjoyment, and the Glasi-specific playground rounds off the programme for families. Glasi Hergiswil has become a profitable enterprise thanks to the successful museum.
