3 EXCEPTIONAL SITES


Five centuries ago, a few nomadic glass-blowers built a makeshift kiln in a rugged valley of the Northern Vosges. These pioneers were to be the very first in the extraordinary industrial and artistic adventure which continues today. Nestling in adjacent valleys, 3 exceptional sites have undertaken to make their sagas known in the very places in which they came into being...

A unique opportunity to discover the magic of a cultural, natural inheritance preserved by the dedication of men.


Lalique-museum Wingen-sur-Moder

The spirit of glass, the magic of crystal


Opened in 2011, the Lalique Museum is located in the village of Wingen-sur-Moder where René Lalique founded a factory in 1921. In a building which combines ancient and contemporary architecture of the Wilmotte agency project, more than 650 works illustrate the exceptional work of René Lalique and his successors. With the videos and large-format photographs, enjoy the atmosphere and expertise which is still perpetuated by the glass-makers of today. From Art Nouveau jewellery to Art Deco glass works to modern crystal, discover a unique and enchanting world.

The Lalique Museum organises activities for adults and children all year round ; don’t hesitate to visit our Website!

The Meisenthal glass-making site

The story continues...


The Meisenthal glass-making site (1711-1969) now reconverted, combines glass-blowers’ memories and contemporary artistic expression.

The Glass Museum presents a rich Art Nouveau collection displaying the genius of Emile Gallé and the virtuosity of the Meisenthal glass-blowers.

The International Glass Art Centre (CIAV) showcases the unceasing work of the glass-blowers commenting their work.

The Halle Verrière organises all year round concerts of contemporary music, performances of street theatre and contemporary art exhibitions.
