The Glasmuseum Passau, designated by Friedrich Dürrenmatt as "the most beautiful glasshouse in the world", is the biggest museum on European glass worldwide and is listed in the "Cultural properties of National Significance".
15,000 pieces on display show the great art and variety of glassmaking in Bavaria, Bohemia, Austria and Silesia from 1650 to 1950. Here in the heart of Europe there is the world famous center of glass production that supplied Europe with all kinds of glass over centuries. Its exquisite collection with many masterpieces exhibited during World Exhibitions during the 19th century and famous glass for European
royal families makes the museum an important center for glass research. The collection focuses on the 19th century and the time of art nouveau – both the Golden Age of glass.
