Swarovski Kristallwelten Wattens Part I

Ad – Invitation by Swarovski

Swarovski Kristallwelten Wattens

Like I told you in this post, I got to meet the lovely people from Swarovski in the ABCstar conference, back in April. I was more than happy when I received an e-mail from Theresa, inviting me to attend the Family Day at the Kristallwelten in Wattens. Markus and I were extremely happy to attend the event, it was beyond amazing!

See what I thought about it and prepare for a photo loaded post:

We started the day at their Sunday’s Brunch in the Daniels Kristallwelten Café & Restaurant, where we had the most delicious meal ever! Alongside the usual bread, butter and ham/cheese, you also had bruschetta, a waffle and crèpe table, croissants, an egg station where you could get your eggs done the way you wish, a stand with fish and meat and much more. Markus tried the salmon and I have to say I was a bit jealous that I didn’t have any space left in my tummy after getting the delicious waffle. After brunch, we were picked up by the lovely Lena, who attended the visit in the Wunderkammern with us.

I have to tell you, it’s a magical place!

The first thing that caught my eye was the gorgeous horse pictured above, in the “Blaue Halle”. You can see the horse is adorned with crystals. But then I realized the wall across the horse wasn’t an ordinary wall, but a crystal-filled-wall. Check it out:

The wall is 11m high and has a length of more than 240m. I mean a-m-a-z-i-n-g! It was beyond beautiful, it looked right out of a fairy tale, in other words – simply magical!

The second room is called the “Mechanical Theatre”, where you can see button down shirts adorned with crystals “dancing” on the ceiling, as well as a human-sized sculpture, called Adoniz, that gets dismantled and put back together again.

In the “Kristalldom”, you’re surrounded by mirrored walls. The breath-taking room is supposed to make you experience how it would be like to be inside an actual crystal. And people can actually get married in there! How amazing is that?

In “Silent light” you see the magic of Christmas and Winter, in the form of snowflakes and a Christmas tree, all made of – you guessed it – crystals! I have to say it did have a very “Winter Wonderland” feeling to it.

Next, you step “Into Lactice Sun”, a room where you can see the utopian landscape of the artist Lee Bul. It’s supposed to symbolize cities and the human kind.

“Kristallkalligraphie” shows us something very interesting: a new form of writing, that Paul Seide created, with the intention of overcoming all language boundaries:

“Transparente Opazität” shows us the many sides of a crystal, in the hands of Arik Levy, who wanted to give us an interactive experience. You can see different crystals and also metals in the shape of crystals in the room.

“Studio Job Wunderkammer” looks like a children’s fair. It has a huge “mountain” in the middle of the room, with a train driving through it. In it, you can see a city, mixing elements of different countries – the Eiffel Tower, the Liberty Statue, the Big Ben and even the Innsbruck dragons.

In “Reflexionen” you can see a medusa made of crystals. It symbolizes that together, you can do everything, that the Swarosvki family, their crystals, their fabrication, would not be possible unless everyone helps and has their own task in the making of it – just like in real life and real families, together we can accomplish all.

We ended the tour in the room “Timeless”, where we can dive into the history and world of Swarovski – you can see photographs of the couple who started it all. After this more than magical experience, we got to go to the store. Boy, did I wish I had an unlimited budget! Everything was beyond gorgeous, beautiful and unique. Pure art, what in my opinion crystals are – just art.

In the end, me and the other bloggers invited received a small bag with a map, informing us all about the whole Kristallwelten. Afterwards, I found out there was also a present: a Crystalline Stardust Stylus pen, something I’ve been dreaming of having for a very long time. I was so moved, seeing I was gifted something I’ve longed for, for so long, it makes the pen be even more valuable for me. 

Swarovski and crystals always had a place in my life – my father used to gift my mother crystal figurines in the shape of animals when I was a kid. I always loved them, the way they shine and sparkle in the light – they had something magical. I know I keep repeating this word, but it truly is how I feel about them. Later on, in life, I understood how much more valuable they are – I used to think they were just sparkly glass – and how they are made. The way they are cut, all of the thinking that goes into one small piece of crystal – it truly is a form of art. Which is why to me, being able to experience this visit, being surrounded by such art, was something I will definitely always remember.

A huge thank you to Swarovski Kristallwelten Wattens for having us!
