An exceptional Glass destination
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.
The Lalique Museum
Lalique museum is dedicated to the exceptional artist René Lalique and his descendants, especially their imprints on Art and Design. The museum shows an exhibition of jewelry and drawings and large-scale works reveals an unique universe between Art nouveau and Art deco.

Meisenthal Glass-Making site
The Meisenthal glass factory, now reconverted, combines glass-blowers’ memories and contemporary artistic expression. The Museum of Glass invites visitors to discover its magnificent Art nouveau collection born of the collaboration between Emile Gallé and the Meisenthal master glass-blowers. The international Glass Art Centre (CIAV) works with designers who offer, every year, a reinterpretation of Christmas tree baubles tradition. All year round, the Halle Verrière programmes concerts, street theatre performances and exhibitions of contemporary art.
