Create an itinerary including Glasmuseum Passau
More than just an entertaining diversion for a rainy day, Glasmuseum Passau is a wonderland of historic glass. In 1985 astronaut Neil Armstrong cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony of this museum, which is filled with more than 30,000 invaluable pieces of glass and crystal, representing a variety of styles and covering centuries of glass-making history. Most of the pieces you can see at this location come from the renowned glassworks of Bohemia, though the museum also exhibits works by the famous Viennese designers. The site is quite large, and it's easy to get lost here for hours; be sure to pick up a floor plan at the entrance before heading to a section that most appeals to your interests. Put Glasmuseum Passau at the forefront of your travel plans using our Passau trip itinerary app.

  • So many different floors and beware if you are tall in some of the doorways. So many interesting examples of glass. Very nice museum and we enjoyed especially some of the older glass displays.

  • We enjoyed our ride across. Fun to stop at the border between Germany and Austria. A little challenging with our bikes up and down the stairs.
  • Interesting but mostly glassware. Some vases and the like. Quite the collection, but I was hoping for more glass art.
