    Down the Crystal Rabbit Hole

    The entrance to the Swarovski Kristallwelten (Crystal Worlds), a 20-minute drive outside of Innsbruck, leads you deep inside a grassy Tirolean hill, with a large, water-spewing face – the “Giant” – looming over you. This somewhat surreal first step is a harbinger of the fact that you’re now entering a different world. You’ll find yourself in a giant dome consisting of 595 mirrors and making you feel like you yourself are inside a crystal. Then, there’s the “Silent Light”, a spiky, sparkling crystal tree by designers Tord Boontje and Alexander McQueen which evokes a frosty winter forest. And you’ll explore the garden, filled with a crystal carousel, a hedge maze shaped like a human hand, and, the centrepiece, a cloud made of 800,000 crystals.

    Divided into 17 so-called “Chambers of Wonder”, this whimsical museum is more than a collection of artifacts. It’s a journey through the crystal-studded visions of famous artists and designers like Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí, and Yayoi Kusama, in which you can linger for a while by visiting the Kristallwelten.
